Population and Society in Contemporary Tibet

Considering how many studies have focused on Tibetan religion, history, traditional culture, the Han migration, human rights, and ethnic relations, much attention has yet to be given to Tibet's economic situation. Sources have shown that ethnic conflicts have been brought about by different groups fostering different economic interests. While religious groups are said to have engaged in economic affairs as they had their own economic interests, migration between regions occupied by different ethnic groups may also have some effect on the economic relationship between regions. This chapter examines the features of the TAR's modern economy before and after 1951 and the corresponding economic relations, economic changes, the central government's role, and the reasons for there being two economic patterns before and after 1959.

Keywords:   economic situation, religious groups, migration, economic relations, modern economy, economic changes, central government, economic patterns
