The Committee for U.S. International Broadcasting (CUSIB) welcomes Jianglin Li, a scholar of Tibetan history, as a new member of its Advisory Board.

Jianglin Li is a researcher and writer, focusing exclusively on the history of Tibet after 1950. She has conducted research in Tibetan refugee camps in India and Nepal and interviewed hundreds of refugees. Since 2004, Jianglin Li has met regularly with the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama and interviewed him many times. She is the first Chinese-speaking writer born in mainland China to be his authorized biographer. She has published more than 30 articles on Tibet and a book on the 1959 Lhasa event. She is currently writing a book on the secret war in Tibet from 1956-1962.

The Committee for U.S. International Broadcasting will benefit from Jianglin Li’s scholarship and her knowledge of Tibet and China as it works to expand the flow of uncensored news and information from the United States to countries without free media.
