The 74-year-old Tibetan leader will today receive the International Jan Langos Award at the Pavol Orszagh Hviezdoslav Theatre in Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia. The award is given to human rights activists and right defenders in memory of the prominent former Slovak dissident Mr. Jan Langos who challenged communism and totalitarian regime in the former Czechoslovakia.

"The International Jan Langos Award is bestowed on His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama in recognition of his lifelong resistance against oppressive regime in China.

Ms. Paula Dobriansky, former Under Secretary of State for Global Affairs, and former Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues, will moderate the discussion.
