The HJS Virtual Event Series: 'China’s Transnational Repression of Uyghurs ' - Monday 18th Oct, 12pm-1pm (BST)
Since the Taliban’s rapid takeover of Afghanistan, much has been said about the grave threat the militants pose to ethnic and religious minorities. One group has, however, been largely overlooked – the Uyghurs. Since the Taliban regained power of the Central Asian country, Uyghurs in the country are anxious over heightened Chinese control and influence. The Chinese state has deployed a range of aggressive methods to silence Uyghur critics abroad, or in some cases even detain and render them back to Xinjiang province. With Beijing positioning itself as a leading player in Afghanistan’s economic future, the country’s Uyghurs will understandably be extremely uneasy over what the future holds.
