Tibet – Nomads at Risk
Located in the mountainous regions of Central Asia, the Tibetan cultural region covers an area about seven times as large as Germany. Today, the Tibet Autonomous Region claims about half of this territory. After the Chinese army had invaded Tibet in 1949/1950, it was established as an administrative unit in 1965. Most occupied regions in the eastern parts of Tibet were incorporated into chinese provinces.
