Researching Tibet has become difficult like that of North Korea according to the director China director for Human Rights Watch. The human rights organization has said according to media reports that researches on Tibet has become more like its work on North Korea as China has further reduced access to the plateau of the world.
Sophie Richardson, the China Director for Human Rights Watch (HRW) has said in a recent interview that their way of working on Tibet has become more like that in North Korea. Their organization can not come up with an annual work plan at the beginning of the year for Tibet due to restrictions. Rather they need to wait and piece together everything they can access.
