2016 08 Summer Reading The Tibetan Nonviolent Struggle
Published in September 2015 by the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, “The Tibetan Nonviolent Struggle: A Strategic and Historical Analysis” is a monograph by Tenzin Dorjee (Tendor) examining Tibetan nonviolent resistance.

From the ICNC website:

The study traces this evolution, analyzing the central themes, purposes, challenges, strategies, tactics and impacts of three major Tibetan uprisings over the past six decades. Tibetans are now waging a quiet, slow-building nonviolent movement, centered on strengthening the Tibetan national and cultural fabric via what the author refers to as transformative resistance. This is happening in an immensely repressive political environment, which shows that there is a way to mobilize people power against even one of the most ruthless regimes in the world.
