CANCELLED - International Institute Round Table

The Uyghur Human Rights Crisis: What is happening in Northwest China?

This event has been cancelled due to the emergency reduction in operations on January 30 & 31, 2019. We are working on rescheduling this important event.

This panel will discuss the situation faced by the Uyghurs, a Muslim minority group living in northwestern China. Since early 2018, media reports, NGOs, and eyewitness accounts have documented that up to one million Uyghurs and members of other Muslim groups have been detained and interned in "re-education camps" by the Chinese government. This discussion will give an overview of the current situation, how it developed, and what may happen in the future. A Q&A will follow.
Moderator: Mary Gallagher, Director of the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies

Louisa Greve, Director of External Affairs, Uyghur Human Rights Project
Nico Howson, Professor of Law, University of Michigan
James Millward, Professor of History, Georgetown
