Webinar - The Persecution of Uyghurs
31/10/2020 5:30pm

The long repression and cultural diminution of Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples turned into systemic annihilation in Xinjian with the establishment of a vast network of concentration camps. In this talk, Dr Özcan will discuss how the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) two-faced ideological identity of communism enhanced with Chinese characteristics and a Han nationalist imperial discourse has gained speed and taken shape with Chairman Xi Jinping.
