II Round Table: The Uyghur Human Rights Crisis: What is Happening in Northwest China?

Tuesday, April 2, 2019
4:00-5:30 PM
220 Hutchins Hall Map
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.

Gardner Bovingdon, associate professor Central Asian Studies, Indiana University Bloomington

Nicholas Howson, professor U-M Law School
