China maintains tight control over the flow of information within its society, and the news and information coming into the country. But in the last few years, the Internet, mobile phones and digital cameras have played a growing role in providing access to information for people in China, and also in bringing information out from the country as well.
This week Kunleng invites Dolkar, RFA call-in show host and blogger, and Tsering Dhondup, a writer/ musician and blogger who lives in Belgium, to discuss the increasing impact of communication technologies on how Tibetans stay informed and share information in the 21st century.
