Tibet represents one of the most controversial situations in world’s political situation. On one hand all objective criteria such as different conventions adopted by United Nations Organization (UN) shows violence of fundamental Human Rights and Freedoms. On the other hand international community does not react. In article we will discus a development of »Tibetan case« and potential reasons of such inactivity of international community, UN Organization and other reasons allowing Peoples Republic of China to violate basic principles accepted by international community represented in UN Organization. In the firs part of the article there is a short overview of Tibetan history. In the second part relations between Tibet and Peoples Republic of China are represented. In the last part there is an international dimension included. Hidden idea of this article is that international law is not enough powerful and that relations of power between states still prevail.
Key Words: Tibet, Peoples Republic of China, UN Organization, Human Rights, International community, International law
