In August 2018, a United Nations human rights panel cited “credible reports” that more than one million people were being held in counter-extremism centres in Xinjiang the Autonomous Region in the northwest corner of China. Beijing denied the scale of the detentions but acknowledged “religious extremist” Ughurs were undergoing reeducation and resettlement. Since then we have been hearing more and more of the appaling abuses of the Uyghur people. In this program, Işın Eliçin speaks to Dr David Brophy, author of “Uyghur Nation: Reform and revolution on the Russia-China Frontier” and senior lecturer in Modern Chinese History at Sydney University.
