Chinese government’s tolerance for Tibetans’ rights has diminished dramatically in recent years and we have seen a marked increase in state control over everyday life, an escalation in the criminalization of nonviolent forms of protest, and a heavy crackdown against freedom of expression, association, and assembly. Since February 2021, Beijing has escalated a crackdown across Tibet and a new wave of arrests, including the detention of a number of prominent Tibetans.
