Recognition of religion or belief in Tibet

According to the standards set out in the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Tibet Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China are classified terminal.

Recognition of religion or belief in Tibet


  • Recognition and registration are amalgamated and yet although there is a focus placed on legal registration procedures, gaining such registration does not act as a guarantor of being able to conduct religious activities freely.

  • The Chinese Communist Party has extended its repressive approach to religion and belief that it applies in Mainland China to Tibet by tailoring its apparatus of terminal restriction to the specifics dynamics of Tibetan religious life.

  • The rule of mandatory registration, especially as this applies to all instances of religious activity, is terminally restrictive and violates the Bielefeldt provision.

Positive elements:

  • Nil.


  • Complete dismantlement of the present terminally restrictive apparatus of laws and policies for religion and belief; realistically, such a dismantlement could only take place if a similar reversal in attitudes and legislation was made for China as a whole within the CCP.
