We collaborate with global partners to ensure that campaigns are coordinated and targeted in order to amplify our work and have substantial impact here in Australia and across the world.
The International Tibet Network
The International Tibet Network is made up of 180 member organisations known as Tibet Support Groups. Its purpose is to maximise the effectiveness of the worldwide Tibet movement. The Network works to develop coordinated strategic campaigns, and encourages increased cooperation among organisations, thereby strengthening the Tibet movement as a whole.
Network members are NGOs based all around the world and all are committed to non-violence as a fundamental principle of the Tibetan struggle.
The International Campaign for Tibet
In 2012, ATC formalised our partnership with the International Campaign for Tibet (ICT). Both organisations are dedicated to working together with a commitment to multilateralism and pressuring the Chinese Government to end its gross and systematic human rights violations in Tibet. ICT has offices in the United States of America and in Europe working with USA and EU legislators for the rights and freedoms of the people of Tibet. In Australia, this work is undertaken by Australia Tibet Council.
Tibetan Community of Australia
ATC works closely with Tibetan community organisations based in cities across Australia. Much of ATC’s work is to ensure that Tibetan voices are heard and that Tibetan people are at the forefront of decision making about their future and the future of their country, currently under occupation.
ATC supports Tibetan community led events and works on specific campaigns, such as Tibet Lobby Day annually to promote the Tibetan cause.
Central Tibetan Administration
The Central Tibetan Administration is Tibet’s elected government based in Dharamshala, India. It is also referred to as the Tibetan Government in Exile. The Tibetan Government in Exile is committed to truth, non-violence and genuine democracy, with Tibetans in exile voting for their elected leadership – China will not allow Tibetans in occupied Tibet to participate in democracy.
ATC is not connected to the Tibetan Government in Exile although we have common goals and support the mission of a Tibet where Tibetans can live free of oppression with dignity.
The Tibet Information Office
The Tibet Information Office is the office of the representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Australia. The Tibet Information Office provides timely information on Tibetan affairs in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. As well as assisting Tibetans living in Australia to preserve their culture and traditions.
