Free. Registration mandatory.

Join McGill's Muslim Law Students' Association and the Hans & Tamar Oppenheimer Chair in Public International Law as we discuss China's treatment of its Uyghur minority population.

We will discuss the political, social and economic implications of China's mass detention and abuse of Uyghurs within its Xinjiang province with:

  • Canadian MP Garett Genius (Sherwood Park—Fort Saskatchewan), who is sits on the House of Commons Special Committee on Canada-China Relations;
  • President of the East Turkistan Information Centre, Rukiye Turdush; and,
  • McGill law lecturer Me Jérôme Beaugrand-Champagne, who specializes in Chinese law.

This event will be on Zoom. RSVP to mlsa.umcgill [at] gmail.com. The MLSA will email you a Zoom link prior to the event.

This is an important and timely issue, we hope you will join us.
