UK Policy on Tibet

Impact: Societal

Description of impact

Mills has acted as invited advisor to the Scottish Parliament's Cross-Party Group on Tibet since 2008. During this time he has drafted four major briefing papers on Tibetan political, religious and human rights issues: `The 2008 Protests in Tibet: Main Facts & Analysis' (2008); `Issues of Sovereignty in the Sino-Tibetan Dispute' (2009); `Religious Policy and State Control in Tibet" (2010); " Self-Immolation Amongst Tibetans, 2009-2012' (2012). All of these papers have been ratified by the Cross Party Group as its principal output to the Scottish Parliament, and distributed to European parliaments and human rights organisations. These papers have since been extensively used by the UK Foreign Affairs Select Committee on Human Rights, as well as by human rights and Tibet organisations.
