Investigate - Educate - Empower

We’ve been helping Tibetans claim their individual and collective rights since 1996.

The Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD) is a non-profit organization committed to advancing human rights and democracy in Tibet and the exiled Tibetan community by empowering Tibetan advocates and monitoring, documenting, and campaigning against human rights abuses.

What we do

Through meticulous research, campaigning, and knowledge-sharing, we aim to confront and rectify human rights abuses, and promote democracy.


We publish reports and document human rights violations that lead to evidence-based campaigns to hold duty-bearers accountable.


We work to bring torturers to justice, end social and economic inequality, change oppressive laws, and free people jailed just for voicing their opinion.


We empower advocates for human rights and democracy by facilitating knowledge-sharing and capacity-building workshops.

Latest Campaign

In an open letter to President Xi Jinping on China’s ‘Children’s Day’ (六一国际儿童节) on 1 June, TCHRD calls on President Xi to end the forced cultural assimilation policy, which is being aggressively implemented under the guise of “Second Generation Ethnic Policy” in Tibet.
