About the event

The mass internment of members of the Muslim Uyghur ethnicity in China’s Xinjiang province continues to attract global attention and concern. Adding to the complexity is the opinion that world leaders such as President Trump are focusing on the atrocities for political gain instead of humanitarian interests. Building on established facts, panelists will introduce and examine historical and cultural perspectives related to the Xinjiang region, the Uyghur people, and Beijing’s actions.
