Canada Tibet Committee contributes to UN study on Assembly and Association Rights in the Context of Natural Resource Extraction

January 30, 2015

For his upcoming report to the Human Rights Council in June 2015, UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights to Freedom of Peaceful Assembly and to Association, Mr. Maina Kiai, will focus on the exercise of these rights in the context of natural resource exploitation. To inform his report, the Rapporteur has called for submissions from UN member states, businesses, and civil society.

The written submission made today by the Canada Tibet Committee emphasizes the lack of civil and political rights in Tibet, the growing number of mining protests in Tibet, and China's apparent "double standard" in the application of corporate social responsibility best practice.
