TCCR’s Vision

TCCR envisages a future for the Tibetans that will be free from violence. TCCR envisions the exiled Tibetan community becoming empowered to work as a united force to achieve the goals that we desire from the core of our hearts. TCCR envisions that all Tibetans – when finally reunited in Tibet – live in peace with each other and our neighbours, and spread the message of non-violence and compassion across borders.

 Our Mission Statement

TCCR is determined to fortify its contribution to the Tibetan community – and the world as a whole – by continuing to promote understanding and develop greater competence in the non-violent management of conflicts and democratic processes, irrespective of backgrounds and cultures. TCCR as an NGO strives to ensure the growth of ideas, dialogue and a culture of wisdom in the Tibetan community and globally. TCCR forms a network with its sister-organisations, embraces international expertise and establishes a platform in the international arena for sharing the wealth of tools and skills involved in Conflict Transformation.

The Tibetan Centre for Conflict Resolution’s Aims

We aim to promote and develop the approaches and tools of non-violent conflict resolution and democratic processes in our Tibetan community in exile and other cultural communities. This in turn strengthens and ensures the continued adherence to non-violence being the guiding principle of our struggle in the long term.

Immediate Objectives:

–          To empower the Tibetan refugee communities in the settlements/institutions and the local Indian communities by providing them with conflict resolution skills and tools which help in the prevention of violence and escalation of conflicts and guide them in managing future conflict situations using non-violent methodology.

–          To develop a better understanding of democracy at the grassroots level and strengthen democratic processes in the Tibetan community in exile.

–          To equip the newly arrived Tibetan refugees escaping from Tibet, with communication and conflict resolution skills so that they are better able to handle conflict situations in the new environment and when back in Tibet become promoters of the merits of non-violent approaches in dealing with conflicts.

–          To dissolve negative stereotypes and promote mutual understanding and deeper respect between and among the local Indian communities and Tibetan refugee communities.

–          Create a platform for better understanding among different sections of the society, different cultures and religions therefore resulting in prevention of violent conflicts in the long-run.
