Işın Eliçin 19 Aralık 2021 Pazar

In his much acclaimed book,“The War on the Uyghurs: China’s Internal Campaign against a Muslim Minority”,Sean Roberts, an associate professor of international affairs and anthrophology at George Washington University, makes a strong case that what’s happening to Uyghurs in China amounts to a blatant act of cultural genocide. The book also explores how the US-led ‘War on Terror’ has been used by Beijing as a cover and justification for the ongoing persecution of Uyghurs. In this interview, Roberts explains “The War on Uyghurs,” how China implements its policies in this war, and why “Uyghur genocide is a symptom of a greater malaise in the world” that the global community must be vigilant about.
