    News & Events

    The UCA Asian Studies Program and the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia present The Uyghur Crisis and Islam in East Asia: What Everyone Needs to Know, a two-day workshop to foster a better understanding of the ongoing human rights crisis in Xinjiang. Since 2017, the Chinese government has imprisoned over one million Uyghur Muslims in what has become the largest mass internment of an ethnic minority group since World War II. This event brings together China specialists and Uyghur community members to discuss the broader history of Muslim communities in China, the everyday experiences of Uyghurs in Xinjiang today, and the global significance of this ongoing human rights crisis.
