Question for written answer
to the Vice-President of the Commission / High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy
Rule 138
Isabel Santos (S&D)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: ‘Ethnic Unity’ legislation — human rights of Tibetans in jeopardy

The International Campaign for Tibet revealed how the ‘ethnic unity’ legislation recently adopted in Tibet will further erode the fundamental liberties of Tibetans and infringe their human rights.

The new legislation adopted on 11 January 2020 aims to establish ‘model areas for national unity and progress’ in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) and to give the Chinese government powers to impose a Chinese-centric way of life and cultivate Chinese Communist Party informers.

Certain provisions of the new regulations stand out, as they aim at indoctrinating Tibetan preschool children with ideological propaganda and interfere with the spheres of family and its privacy.

In light of the concerns regarding Tibet raised at the 43rd session of the UN Human Rights Council, I should like to ask the following:

1. What actions are being pursued by the EEAS in connection with the bilateral dialogue with China regarding the autonomy of Tibet and the protection of human rights of Tibetans?

2. Can the Vice-President/High Representative clarify his understanding of the proposed Extradition Treaty between China and Nepal and its implications for Tibetan residents in Nepal?
