The United States, along with Canada, the United Kingdom and the EU, have taken multiple steps in response to the ongoing genocide against the Uyghur minority in China's Xinjiang Province. In addition to sanctions, such as targeted travel bans and asset freezes, the US State Department has classified China's treatment of the Uyghurs as a genocide. Numerous US executive and legislative efforts aim to identify and ban Chinese exports produced with Uyghur forced labor.
How effective and well-coordinated is the US's developing policy and legislative response to the Uyghur genocide? What prospects does the American response have to change China's calculations regarding their Xinjiang policies? What other possible coordinated executive or legislative responses might be promising? What opportunities exist for state-civil society collaboration for a coordinated response to the Uyghur genocide?
The webinar asks our 5 distinguished guests to discuss these questions. Please join us!
