People to interview

This proposed assignment will profile Thakur P. Mishra, head of the Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency. Mishra has worked to resettle many persecuted Bhutanese suffering political persecution in the United States, where they can find a harbor of safety. Mishra is a journalist in exile from his native Bhutan as well as works to help others who have been persecuted by the current ruling Bhutanese regime. He is also an editor and special correspondent for the monthly Bhutan Reporter (TBR) as well as the founder and editor-in-chief of the Bhutan News Service (BNS) ("Thakur P. Mishra," 2015). He maintains an active blog on the subject of Bhutan entitled A Former Refugee's Journal. As well as interviewing Mishra himself, current and former co-workers of Mishra will be interviewed, along with people who have been helped by the Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency. If time permits, experts on issues of Bhutan and freedom in the press will be interviewed from local universities.

Given the lack of freedom in Bhutan, the focus will be on Bhutanese sources living in the United States. Freedom of the press in Bhutan and other issues

Even after independence, freedom of the press was still limited. In the 1980s, Nepali-speakers were placed under further restrictions which precipitated a series of demonstrations by the Bhutanese People's Party (BPP), causing many Southern Bhutanese to flee to Nepal in the early 1990s: free elections only took place in…
