The Association was established in Turin, at the Piedmont Regional Council, on March 9th 2002, upon the initiative of the Piedmont Region and with the inclusion of ANCI (Associazione Nazionale Comuni Italiani / National Association of Italian Cities & Municipalities).
The Association aims at promoting and coordinating the European campaign entitled "A flag for the status of full autonomy of Tibet", designed to support at EU level a resolution by the European Parliament issued on July 6th 2000, and to support the Dalai Lama’s and the Tibetan government’s initiatives with regard to the authorities of the People’s Republic of China.
In 2011, 201 Italian Local Bodies had taken the membership of the association. Now the Association has changed name and organization. Infact has taken the form of association of Piedmont regional councillors and the name of Associazione per il Tibet e i diritti umani (Association for Tibet and human rights). Currently are members 42 out of 60 regional councillors.
On 16th December, 2007, His Holiness the Dalai Lama has visited Turin on invitation of Regional Council and of the Association.
