Inter-area/Border Crossing

Organized Panel Session

3 - Tibetan Refugees , Blurred Citizenship and Transnational Lives

Saturday, July 7
10:20 AM - 11:50 AM
Location: Silveroak II, Ground Floor

Although there were cross-border movements between Tibet and west Arunachal Pradesh for more than three centuries, the relations stopped dramatically after the 1962 war. Tibetans were forced to negotiate their existence in Indian territory either as refugees or through a "blurred citizenship", where they sought to conceal their transnational identities. My paper will focus on how practices of forged documents, marriage etc that create such forms of blurred citizenship becomes a means to navigate transnational existence in a disputed border region.
