I have participated in the activities of the International Tibet Network since its inception. I was, in fact, involved in the inaugural meeting when discussions were held about the mandate and operating approach that would be elevate collaboration between the many Tibet-related organizations around the world. Little did I know at that time, to what extent the network would succeed in reaching its lofty objectives. This is in great measure due to the consistent and principled leadership the network has enjoyed, particularly its adherence to a facilitator's approach to campaigning, and the open and transparent nature of its administration. Today, the Network is viewed as an essential component of the international movement to promote human rights in Tibet.
