Websites on Tibet

23 June, 2008

Anthropologist Les Sponsel of the University of Hawai’i circulated an extensive list of Tibet-related websites through the list-serv of the Committee for Human Rights of the American Anthropological Association. I thought that this was a good place to spread this list, which Prof. Sponsel asked recipients to do.

In addition, it’s an opportunity to alert our readers to the Committee, including their advice for researchers in the field who observe what they believe to be human rights violations.

Thanks to Prof. Sponsel, however, for doing all the hard yards assembling this extensive list of resources; I’ve deleted a couple general news sites that weren’t Tibet-specific just to make the list more manageable, but I’ve made all the addresses live links. If anyone finds a misdirected link, just tell me, and I’ll fix it.
