China’s persecution of the Uyghurs: What can Belgium and the EU do?


Thursday, 4th March 2021, 16:00 – 17:30 (CET – Brussels time)

In recent months, newly discovered evidence has further highlighted the gross violations of universal human rights being perpetrated against the Uyghurs in China. It is time for democratic countries across the world to take action and uphold their democratic values, by condemning these atrocities. Speakers will hence explore policy and legal avenues at EU and Belgian levels to counter the ongoing persecution of the Uyghurs in China.

The discussion is organised in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy to Belgium and the U.S. Mission to the European Union.
