The Tibetan Political Review
is an online journal dedicated to advancing constructive discussion of the important political issues facing the Tibetan nation.

Publication of an Article does not imply endorsement or agreement by the Editorial Board.

Editorials are the opinion of the members of the Editorial Board.  Editorials are by their nature opinionated, and are not intended to be "neutral."  The Editors attempt to be fair in their analyses, but they are expressing their own opinions.  The Editors invite responses from readers, especially if they disagree with an opinion expressed in an Editorial.
