This chapter examines the state of Tibetans in the new world, arguing that they have a wider audience now and a broader array of tactics, and are acutely sensitive to the available discourses and their currency in global politics. With Tibetans' adoption of new technology, and their willingness to engage with Western, Chinese, and their own exilic discourses about Tibet and its relationship to China and the world, this chapter suggests that people are actually changing the way they think about Tibet and its place in the world. What remains to be seen is whether they will be able to affect change for their brothers and sisters who remain in Tibet, their voices not completely silenced but muffled under the might of the Chinese state.

Keywords:   global politics, technology, exilic discourses, China
