A new ICT report released on June 20, UN World Refugee Day, documents dangers for Tibetan refugees transiting to Nepal and for Nepal’s long-staying Tibetan refugee community. The report attributes these dangers to inadequate protections provided to Tibetans by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the government of Nepal, and to significant pressure from Nepal’s northern neighbor, the People’s Republic of China, to comply with its directives on the treatment of Tibetan refugees and their activities in Nepal. ”Dangerous Crossing: Conditions Impacting the Flight of Tibetan Refugees,” an annual report, covers developments affecting Tibetan refugees in 2010.
