On his first official state visit to Minnesota, the Political Leader of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile, Dr. Lobsang Sangay, will be speaking on campus in a guest lecture on US-China relations, Tibet, and human rights in the region, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
A Harvard Law School graduate, Dr. Sangay is the first democratically elected Tibetan Prime Minister after His Holiness the Dalai Lama devolved political power to him in 2011. He was a Senior Fellow at the East Asian Legal Studies Program at Harvard Law School after he obtained his LL.M. He is an expert on international law, democratic constitutions, and contemporary China. In 2007, he was selected as one of the twenty-four Young Leaders of Asia by the Asia Society and a delegate to the World Justice Forum in Vienna, Austria, where top legal experts and judges from around the world congregate.
The event will take place next Friday, October 12, 2012 at Walter Mondale Hall in Room 25. Doors open at 3:30pm and the event will begin at 4:00.
