Tibetan Self-Determination and Human Rights: A Conversation with Eva Herzer, International Committee for Lawyers for Tibet

Dhir interviews Eva Herzer, the president of the International Committee for Lawyers for Tibet. Herzer frankly assesses why China is roundly condemned for human rights violations and yet not a single government in the world recognizes Tibet as a country entitled to independence. She also discusses how population control policies implemented by the Chinese in Tibet fall within the Genocide Convention. Nevertheless, the interview stresses the importance of expanding trade and other relationships with China.
