The report, entitled The Uyghur Genocide: An Examination of China’s Breaches of the 1948 Genocide Convention). The report was written by a team of experts on international law, genocide, China’s racial policies, and the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, who reviewed the evidence. The report confirms that the People’s Republic of China bears state responsibility for the Uighur genocide in violation of the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Crimes Against Humanity.
The report cites Article II of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Crimes Against Genocide, which states that the elements of the crime of genocide are “the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a protected group of persons. The report notes that even if a “state” does not explicitly state that it intends to exterminate a particular ethnic group, it can be discerned from official documents or policy plans of that state.
The report notes that Communist Party General Secretary Xi Jinping launched a “people’s war on terror” in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region in 2014. Senior officials then issued orders to “round up all those who should be rounded up,” “completely eliminate them …… and uproot them,” and “destroy their lineage, destroy their roots, destroy their ties, and destroy their sources.” Chinese officials have repeatedly likened the mass detention of Uighurs to the “eradication of cancer cells.
The report notes that the Chinese government began to allow Han Chinese cadres to live in Uighur homes for surveillance in 2014, destroying local families. In 2017, the Chinese Communist Party raised the banner of “de-extremism” and sent Uyghurs to mass re-Education camps.
The report also alleges that the Communist regime has imposed sterilization policies on Uyghurs and forcibly sent Uyghur children to state-run institutions. The policy has eliminated Uyghur identity, community and Family Life; Uyghur intellectuals and community leaders have also been targeted and persecuted.
Rian Thum, a professor of Uighur history at the University of Manchester, describes the Communist regime’s repressive approach to Xinjiang as “one of the greatest cultural eradications of the past century. He believes that many Uighurs will see the report as “belated confirmation” of “the torture they, their friends, family and communities have endured.
“The Institute for Innovation Strategy and Policy, formerly the Center for Global Policy, was established in 2019 to strengthen U.S. foreign policy.
China has been accused of setting up “re-education camps” in Xinjiang, forced labor of Uyghurs and even the “systematic rape” of Uyghur women. While the Chinese government has denied all allegations of human rights abuses, claiming that the so-called “vocational skills education and training centers” are necessary to prevent religious extremism and terrorism, Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Sunday criticized claims of “genocide” in Xinjiang as Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Sunday even criticized the claim of “genocide” in Xinjiang as “absurd”. But one after another, governments and lawmakers have characterized the Chinese Communist Party’s genocide of the Uyghurs and even called for a boycott of next year’s Winter Olympics in Beijing.
