This all-day conference will provide a critical examination of the mass detention of Uyghurs (and other Turkic Muslims) in “reeducation” camps in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) by providing analysis of the available evidence, historical and political background, and domestic and foreign policy implications of the “reeducation” camps.
