About ICT

Working to promote human rights and democratic freedoms
for the people of Tibet

For more than two decades, the International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) has called the world’s attention to the injustices and brutality being suffered by the people of Tibet. We’ve shone a spotlight on China’s repressive authority and intervened on behalf of political prisoners. We’ve worked with and been guided by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and have provided support to Tibetans in exile.

Some of the work we do includes:

  • Monitors and reports on human rights, environmental and socio economic conditions;
  • Advocates for Tibetans imprisoned for their political or religious beliefs;
  • Works with governments to develop policies and programs to help Tibetans;
  • Secures humanitarian and development assistance for Tibetans;
  • Mobilizes individuals and the international community to take action on behalf of Tibetans;
  • Promotes self-determination for the Tibetan people through negotiations between the Chinese government and the Dalai Lama.

Founded in 1988, ICT is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization with offices in Washington, D.C., Amsterdam, Berlin and Brussels and field offices in Dharamsala and Kathmandu.
