What does the Tibet Support Committee do?
One of the committee's main functions is the dissemination of information about conditions in Tibet to politicians, authorities, media, other organizations and especially the public.
Through our contact with government and politicians, we are helping to give them the ideas and information they need to maintain a focus on China's abuses in Tibet.
We make sure that the Danish press is constantly informed of new developments in Tibet, including disseminating news releases and reports from the worldwide network of Tibet and human rights organizations and from the Tibetan government in exile.
We hold and participate regularly in events such as discussion evenings, lectures, seminars and other cultural or political events that aim to inform Danes on the situation in Tibet. We do this often in collaboration with other Tibetan organizations in Denmark.
Assistance /Cooperation with other Tibet organisations
For several years, Støttekomiteen Tibet has supported a Danida-funded aid project in the Tibetan exile community, in cooperation with the exile government. This is a project which developed a system to help the many torture survivors fleeing Tibet.
We often cooperate with or participate in networking activities for Danish private organizations. Additionally, we contribute to coordinate activities and exchange of information within the global network of Tibet groups via the Internet exchanges.
The støttekomiteen for Tibet association publishes a member magazine Sneløven that contains news and background articles on Tibet, reaching around 700 people and is also to be found in some libraries. Sneløven is the only Danish magazine on Tibet.
Book publishing and sales
In recent years we have published or participated in the publication of several books focusing on Tibet. Our shop in Ryesgade in Copenhagen has the largest selection of books on Tibet and is the only place in Denmark, where reports on the situation in the occupied land are available.
The association works on a daily basis as a resource base where pupils, students, journalists, travelers and others can get help and inspiration on the study of conditions in Tibet.
