THE SPIRAL OF VIOLENCE: A STUDY OF TIBETAN REFUGEES’

AGGRESSION EXPRESSION IN NEPAL

Achyut Aryal
 
ABSTRACT
This study delves into the spiral of violence by Tibetan refugees as a model of opinion expression in a minority community through an examination of news coverage of Tibetan refugees by the Nepalese press and their aggression expression pattern. The methodology adopted is based on content analysis and survey. The findings of the study, however, reveal that the Nepalese media concentrates heavily on the coverage of Tibetan refugees’ aggressive activities worldwide. Further, the paper posits that due to fear of isolation, Tibetan refugees remain almost silent, and such a behavior compels them to express their voices through different modes of aggression, which create a spiral of violence over time, affecting media, society and refugees themselves.
