An Update on Chinese Repression of Uyghur Muslims
Seattle, WA, USA
World Affairs Council of Seattle
Instructions on how to join this virtual meeting will be sent the day before the program. The United States and China are engaged in an increasingly intense confrontation over Beijing's human rights record. Biden recently vowed to be "unrelenting" in calling attention to China's human rights abuses and has formally labeled China’s treatment of Uighur Muslims a genocide. Human rights groups believe China has detained more than a million Uighurs over the past few years in a campaign of mass detention and sterilization. In October 2019, the World Affairs Council partnered with Human Rights Watch for a discussion on the Chinese repression of the Uighur population and overall human rights in China. We are pleased to welcome back Brad Adams, executive director of Human Rights Watch’s Asia Division, for an updated assessment of China’s treatment of its Uighur population.
