The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) policies in Xinjiang since 2017 have imprisoned some 300,000 and interned approximately a million more indigenous non-Han central Asians in educational transformation camps; razed or damaged thousands of mosques, shrines, and old neighborhoods; actively suppressed indigenous birth rates far below Han levels; illegalized core elements of Uyghur and Islamic culture; and pushed tens of thousands of non-Han adults into forced factory labor and children into state institutions. The revelation of these policies has contributed to the worst crisis for foreign policy in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) since 1989. Moreover, because the CCP requires declarations of loyal support from citizens and officials for its Xinjiang policies, this also comprises a Cultural Revolution–type domestic crisis in which no one can say no to a dictatorial leader despite the clearly destructive nature of that leader’s policies.
