International Responses to the Uyghur Issue

12:30 to 14:00
On-site Lecture

NIAS is excited to invite to this on-site lecture by Julie Yu-Wen Chen about the international repsonses to the Uyghur issue in China.


Since various Uyghur diasporic organizations have been given legitimacy by liberal democracies and international governmental organizations, they can no longer be considered merely splintered members of a far-flung diaspora locked in a one-sided struggle with Beijing. Uyghur activists can and do use their hard-won legitimacy as legal migrants and asylum seekers to influence politics in their host countries. In this presentation, Julie Yu-Wen Chen examines Uyghur’s international activism, revisits the legitimacy issue of the Uyghur cause for self-determination and survey uneven international responses to it, from states to individuals.
