Tibetan Peacebuilding and Leadership Training

Jul 11, 2013



Improve the livelihoods of vulnerable Tibetans living in exile in India through the strengthening of civil society among all refugees. Strengthening civil society allows Tibetans to help Tibetans and is therefore a sustainable, responsive and long-term solution to development challenges.

Founded by former United States Ambassador John W. McDonald, The Institute for Multi-Track Diplomacy (IMTD) has over 20 years of experience working with Tibetans in exile. Based on prior dialogues, IMTD has identified three key areas in which vulnerable groups of Tibetans living in exile in both North and South India feel there is a great need for improvement.

1. Cultural Preservation

2. Youth Leadership

3. Volunteerism

The goal of this program is to strengthen deliverable services in these domains and assist in creating a more responsive and comprehensive refugee Tibetan civil society. In addition to the above, this project will foster crosscutting relationships among those in Tibetan civil society, The Central Tibetan Administration, The United Nations System and the Indian government. The relationship building will be key to future successful delivery of Tibetan development services and will allow for more streamlined communication between all stakeholders.
