The Harvard Project on Cold War Studies (HPCWS) is hosting a conference on "The Cold War and Its Legacy in Tibet: Great-Power Politics and Regional Security," on 20-21 April 2002. The conference will be held in Room 202, Harvard Hall, which is located in Harvard Yard on the university campus.
Over 40 leading specialists from three continents will discuss sixteen
papers on the Cold War in Tibet, current-day ethnic conflict, and regional security in South Asia. Findings from the conference will be published and disseminated to scholars and policy makers.
The program of events includes a guest lecture by U.S. Under Secretary of State, Paula Dobriansky, who is the most senior U.S. official responsible for policy toward Tibet; the screening of a BBC documentary on the Tibetan resistance movement; and a closing discussion on prospects for Sino-Tibetan dialogue. All conference panels and the closing discussion will be free and open to the public. The program and agenda are available on-line at the HPCWS Internet site at:
