China has considered Han-Tibetan relations as a major concern since the first Lhasa street demonstration in 1987. Official reports and documents have often drawn attention to the central government's financial assistance toward Tibetan economic and social developments. However, foreign media are usually drawn to highlighting issues of ethnic conflicts, human rights violations, and religious suppression. Through addressing issues regarding the real situation in Lhasa and the actual living situations of Han and Tibetan residents, residential patterns that are based on records for household registration are analyzed since these reveal opportunities in which people interact with their neighbors. Especially in cases that concern in-migration, residential patterns serve as indicators of group relations. This chapter particularly examines Lhasa by looking into factors that affect, and conditions for, social interaction.

Keywords:   Han-Tibetan relations, Lhasa, residential patterns, household registration, in-migration, group relations, social interaction
