China's mistreatment of its Uyghur minority has drawn international condemnation and sanctions. This repression and other domestic security policies are hugely costly to China, and yet despite this, the Chinese Communist Party both persists in its policies while investing in public diplomacy efforts. Why? Join us for a wide-ranging conversation to examine the intersection of repression in China; Chinese domestic and international security and diplomatic considerations; and U.S. policy perspectives. This event draws from the new book, "Zero Tolerance: Repression and Political Violence in China’s Silk Road," by Miller Center Senior Fellow Philip Potter and Chen Wang.
This online-only event is co-sponsored by UVA’s National Security Policy Center.
