Yunnan Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, is a multi-ethnic, multi-religious region. For long, people of different ethnic groups and different religious beliefs have coexisted and built an inclusive pluralistic society.


This talk aims to summarize the "Diqing Experience", in which multi-ethnic, multi-religious groups coexist harmoniously, find out the causes for its formation, and to explore its implications for us. It is argued that the formation of this social ecology is not only related to the specific geographical location and historical process of the Diqing area, but also the support of specific social mechanism. Thus, the speaker tried to reflect on the traditional "ethnicity", and "nationality" concepts, and discuss the significance of "Diqing experience" for us to understand today's ethnic problems.
