The Central Tibetan Administration has organized a two day workshop on the ‘Middle-Way Approach’ at the Samyeling Tibetan Colony in Delhi, India on July 13, 2013. The Middle-Way approach is proposed by the Dalai Lama to peacefully resolve the Tibetan issue by bringing stability and coexistence between the Tibetan and Chinese people. The approach aims to achieve a genuine autonomy for all Tibetans living in the three traditional provinces of Tibet: Utsang, Amdo, and Kham within the framework of the People's Republic of China.
The workshop was attended by 22 representatives from India, Nepal, and Bhutan. The main objective of the workshop was to assess the understanding of the Middle-Way Approach in the Tibetan community especially among the younger generations of Tibetans in the diaspora.
"Middle Way Approach is the best policy to resolve the Tibetan issue with China. No government or international organization will come forward to support us if we raise the issue of independence of Tibet. The present support that we get as a community will also disappear," says Chokyong Wangchuk, the Director of the Tibetan Parliament and Policy Research Centre, who is also a member of the Tibetan Parliament in exile.
