Multinational Integration, Cultural Identity and Regional Self-Government assesses the current state of the international theory and practice of autonomy in order to pursue the possibility for regional self-government in Tibet. Initiated by a workshop, and roundtable with political representatives from different autonomous regions, including His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, this book brings together a group of distinguished international scholars in order to offer a much-needed enquiry into solutions to the Tibetan quest for substantial autonomy.

Examining the Chinese framework of regional self-government, along with key international cases of autonomy in Europe, North America and Asia, the contributors to this volume offer a comprehensive context for the consideration of both Tibetan demands and Chinese worries. Their insights will be invaluable to academics practitioners, diplomats, civil servants, government representatives, international organisations, and NGOs interested in the theory and practice of autonomy, as well as those concerned with the future of Tibet.
