Abstract of "The Xinjiang Conflict: Why It's Time to Try Mediation"
Amidst the multiple forms of conflict worldwide, the Xinjiang conflict and treatment of Uyghurs in China have received scant attention, a grave injustice. While the Afghanistan crisis, the looming possibility of another American Civil War, or even the re-emerging climate crisis are all issues of importance, the Xinjiang conflict is equally deserving of the world’s attention. As researchers from the Australian Institute of International Affairs so eloquently expressed, “It seems convenient for the world to turn a blind eye to China’s mass internment of Uyghurs in its northwestern Xinjiang Province. But the repercussions from inaction may prove a threat to stability both in the Asia Pacific and around the world.” Accordingly, through this article, I seek to provide global competence where holistic knowledge of global events and their international and legal implications will significantly assist any attorney, no matter the field of law they practice or pursue.
