In an effort to deal with the international crisis stemming from China’s industrial-scale suppression of its Uyghur minority, New Lines Institute established the Uyghur Scholars Working Group. The Working Group brings together experts to enhance situational awareness on the conditions that the 3 million ethnic Turkic Muslims face in their native region of Xinjiang. The group engages in research and analysis on how best the U.S. government and its allies and partners can deal with Beijing’s efforts to erase Uyghur identity and culture.
The Uyghur Scholars Working Group launched the Uyghur Series in 2020, an occasional series presenting research, analysis and policy recommendations on the events unfolding in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) in the People’s Republic of China.
