The course will introduce to the participants the issue of relations between state authorities and religious bodies in China with special focus on Tibetan Buddhism. The historical background (Imperial China, Republic of China) will be briefly introduced but the stress will be laid on the developments in the People's Republic of China since 1949. Religious policy towards Tibetan Buddhism will be analysed chronologically and I will deal also with the place of Tibetan Buddhism in the context of the general religious policy of the Chinese state in comparison with other state tolerated religions (e.g. Islam, Christianity).

The course will be taught in English.

The course will be finished by a written exam.
