On his first official state visit to Minnesota, the Prime Minister of
the Tibetan Government-in-Exile, Dr. Lobsang Sangay, will be speaking
on campus in a guest lecture on US-China relations, the situation
inside 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 (the law school) in Room 25. Doors open at 3:30 and the
event will begin at 4:00pm.
