Lack of Answers Makes ‘Clear’ Missing Academics Are Detained in Xinjiang Camps: Exile Group

The fate of several missing Uyghur academics in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) remains a closely guarded secret, which members of the Uyghur exile community say makes “clear” that they have been detained in the region’s vast network of internment camps.

Reporting by RFA’s Uyghur Service and other media outlets has revealed that numerous professors from major research and teaching institutions in the XUAR have disappeared since authorities began placing up to 1.8 million Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities accused of harboring “strong religious views” and “politically incorrect” ideas in internment camps since April 2017.
