The International Tibet Network promotes campaigns designed to end human rights violations in Tibet and restore the Tibetan people's right under international law to determine their own political, economic, social, religious, and cultural status. The Tibet movement is stronger and more effective with coordinated strategic campaigns that member groups participate in together.
A current example of a global coordinated campaign is the "ENOUGH!" campaign - the Network and Tibet movement's response to the current series of self-immolations by Tibetans in Tibet. See www.StandupforTibet.org
Other international campaigns are based around our Strategic Plan, which involves strategies to amplify the actions and voices of Tibetans inside Tibet, and enhance their efforts to exercise the right of free expression. The plan also calls for renewed pressure on world governments and on Chinese government leaders with responsibility for Tibet policy, and outreach to key groups of Chinese people.

Most campaigns are planned and implemented through Campaign Working Groups. For example, a Political Prisoners Campaign Working Group has devised and promoted a range of actions in support of Tibetan political prisoners, see below.
The Network has a number of campaign microsites, all of which contain information and useful campaign materials like urgent actions and petitions:
Enough! Global Intervention to Save Tibetan Live is a collective response from the Tibet movement to the self-immolations and crackdown taking place right now in Tibet.
A campaign website for the release of Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, the 11th Panchen Lama, missing since 1995.
Tibet groups working in this campaign working group develop strategies and actions to highlight Tibetan political prisoners and press for their release.
I Tibet is a celebration of the Tibetan Cultural Resistance. The site is full of insightful writings, inspiring lyrics and moving music videos by a new generation of Tibetan artists from inside Tibet.
Chinese-Leaders.org is dedicated to providing key information, quality analysis and up-to-date commentary on China’s current and future leaders, with special relevance to Tibet.
The website is in Chinese. It provides an introduction to the Tibet issue in the Chinese language, focusing on writings about Tibet by Chinese authors from within China.

This report lists 17 'Points of Disagreement' between China and Members of the International Tibet Network. It was released just before the 60th anniversary of the signing of the 17th Point Agreement.
Among previous examples of global campaigns is the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and the movement's response to the 2008 Uprisings in Tibet, which began with peaceful protests in Lhasa on 10 March 2008; these peaceful protests spread across the Tibetan plateau and China's ensuring crackdown led to over a hundred deaths and thousands of detentions.
