Stanford University Press

This chapter examines how the 1,000 members of the TUSRP were welcomed in the United States. It focuses on the initial stages of resettlement, before family reunification, specifically the years 1992–1996. It notes that the same concerns of culture loss and change, politics, and economics arose again, but this time filtered through particular U.S. national interests at the time—anxiety over immigration and its attendant economic “burdens” and an economy in recession.

Keywords:   United States, TUSRP, family reunification, Tibetan resettlement, culture loss
