The role of media in reporting on China’s persecution of the Uyghurs


Thursday, 28th January 2021, 16:00 - 17:30 (CET - Brussels time)

As the world is still caught-up in the Coronavirus pandemic, China’s repressive policies and persecution of the Uyghurs continue in silence. Torture, forced labour, sterilisation of Uyghur women are all taking place on a day-to-day basis in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China.

Free and independent media plays a crucial role in denouncing and raising awareness on the gross violations of universal human rights being perpetrated against the Uyghurs by the Chinese Communist Party. This webinar explores how independent quality media can serve as remedy against the ongoing persecution of the Uyghurs by providing a comprehensive and objective outlook on the situation.
