The present report, prepared by the ICJ, is based upon evidence collected by ICJ Member Purshottam Trikamdas and his team, who investigated the situation in Tibet, paying particular attention to the question of violation of human rights.
The report is divided into four parts. The first begins with a short description of Tibet, its geography, history, social and religious structure. This is followed by a chronology of events which took
place in Tibet in the last 12 years, and an account of the circumstances in which, in March 1959, the Dalai Lama left Tibet to take asylum in India.
