Te article explains how Chinese Communist Party interpretations of the unrest are rooted in revolutionary ideology and how this has led to a stiffening of security measures. Te article also compares the different scholarly approaches to interpreting Tibetan grievances and the causes of the current wave of unrest. Te article argues that there is evidence of significant inter-generational and demographic variation in the sources of grievances among the Tibetan population in China, and advocates for greater scholarly sensitivity to such differences.
