This proposal outlines some of the conflicts associated with the Tibetan people as the repressed and overtaken minority within the People's Republic of China. Currently, social conflict is one of the most critical issues facing Tibetans today. This document attempts to direct all concerned parties within the Tibetan social conflict, in order to gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics inherent in the relationships that exist between the parties involved, mainly the Chinese. This assessment will map the conflict, and will outline some of this conflict as a convincing evaluation tool in order to effectively convince Amnesty International that there is a reasonable possibility for the immediate initiation of an intervention process on their part, in an effort to resolve the conflict between all parties involved.

[...] Part Planning and Proposed Structure for a second track or citizens' diplomacy initiative bringing together unofficial representatives of the parties to promote peace building or conflict transformation The China-Tibet conflict represents a complex societal complex involving intra-state affairs.
