Religious Liberty in Xinjiang: Terrorism, Repression, and Identity
AbstractXinjiang Province, the far western province of China, has noted an increase in domestic terrorism as a result Uighurs that are radicalized through feelings of religious and ethnic oppression. China is also not evenly implementing its laws on religious protections. This paper suggests a change in Beijing’s policy towards Xinjiang that promotes religious liberty for Uighur Muslims, which will be more conductive to Beijing’s ultimate goals for peace, stability, and unity in the region.
