Tibet

With an average elevation higher than the tallest peaks of Colorado, Tibet has been called the "Roof of the World."  Join Active Minds as we explore the history and controversy that surrounds this unique region. China claims that Tibet has been part of China for centuries, while many Tibetans maintain that China illegally invaded the independent country in 1949. We will cover the role of the Dalai Lama and the views of China and the international community as we seek to understand the situation there.
