(TibetanReview.net, Sep08, 2017) – A delegation of four members from Taiwan led by the group Human Rights Network for Tibet and Taiwan are visiting Dharamshala and has called on Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, on Sep 7. The delegation has also presented a discussion on the ‘Democratization and Social Movement in Taiwan’. The discussion was organized by Tibet Policy Institute, the think tank of the Central Tibetan Administration.

The delegation included the network’s founder and chairperson Mr Tashi Tsering, Executive Director of the Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty Ms Hsin-yi Lin, Legislative Assistant Ying-Chun Liu of Taiwanese Legislator Yu Mei-Nu whom she was representing, and Vice Chair of Taiwan Association for Human Rights Wu Jiazhen.

The delegation described the democracy and freedom that now exists in Taiwan as a “result of lots of struggles and sacrifices”. However, Wu Jiazhen has said Taiwan still did not have a clear sense of national identity due to competing assertions among its people of being Chinese and Taiwanese. She felt that Tibetans were much better placed as far as having a common national identity for developing democracy was concerned.

The delegation was earlier hosted a dinner reception by the Tibetan parliament in exile on Sep 5.
