In just about every situation you can see both positive and negative sides to stories, but when it come to human rights violations it’s hard to see more than one side. The story of Tibet is so complex and so simply at the very same time. On one hand you can go as far back as the 1200s to get the history of Tibet and find out what dynasty did what to whom. On the other hand since when has history determined how we should handle disputes among nations, human rights should just be a common sense policy. China’s side is basically this; Tibet is and always has been “Chinese territory”. How can you invade a region that already belongs to you? In 1959 Tibet had been part of China for seven centuries. “ Beijing dispatched troops to prevent secession by the  serf-owning elite, which objected to the abolition of slavery, not to  implement annexation.” (Mazza, 2008) Doesn’t sound like the same  thing, does it?  The Chinese government just has a different tact to dealing with Tibetans and their culture, which is not very tactfully.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
