(TibetanReview.net, May17, 2018) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has on May 10 reappointed Dr Tenzin Dorjee to the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), giving the first Tibetan to occupy the position a second term. He was appointed to the Commission for the first by Pelosi on Dec 8, 2016.

Dr Dorjee is Associate Professor at the Department of Human Communication Studies, California State University, Fullerton (CSUF). His primary teaching and research interests are intergroup, intercultural, and intergenerational communication, identity issues, peacebuilding, and conflict resolution. At CSUF he has received faculty recognition awards for outstanding achievements in teaching (2011), research (2013), and community service (2015).

He is also a Tibet scholar and has authored and co-authored articles on Tibetan culture, identity, nonviolence, and middle way approach to conflict resolution.

On behalf of USCIRF, Dr Dorjee has traveled to Burma and Iraq to monitor religious freedom conditions and has testified before the US Congress.

The USCIRF is an independent, bipartisan US federal government commission. It reviews the facts and circumstances of religious freedom violations abroad and makes policy recommendations to the President, Secretary of State, and Congress.

USCIRF Commissioners are appointed by the President and the Congressional leadership of both political parties.
