CTC releases APEC briefing paper for Tibet groups

October 30, 2014

China's human rights abuses against the Tibetan people, combined with its exploitation of Tibet's natural resources and policies that contribute to social and political marginalization, clearly challenge the notion that economics and human rights can be de-linked in principle or practice. For Tibet-related organizations hoping to engage APEC as an advocacy target, the broad questions about the social, economic and environmental impacts of its policies can be recast into campaign objectives.

On November 10 and 11, 2014, the political leaders of Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) members will meet in Beijing, China, offering a unique opportunity to engage these debates and to place the focus on China as this year's host country. Engaging APEC: Relevance for the Tibet movement provides background on the APEC agenda, reviews past engagement of the Tibet movement, and offers a short analysis of APEC’s relevance for Tibet-related organizations.
