dc.description.abstract The spectacular leaks of sensitive Chinese government documents are “game over” for the Chinese government’s propaganda campaign denying its massive repression of the Uyghur people. China has not denied the authenticity of the documents. What does this tell us about the nature of the Chinese state, the ambitions of the Party, and the vision of Party General Secretary Xi Jinping? What are the ramifications for other countries’ political, trade, and scholarly relations with China? Nury Turkel is a lawyer and Uyghur rights advocate who was born in a re-education camp in Kashgar at the height of the Cultural Revolution. Turkel holds a Master of Arts in International Relations and a Juris Doctor degree, both from the American University in Washington, DC. He is the first US-educated Uyghur lawyer. Turkel practices law in D.C., specializing in regulatory compliance, federal investigation and enforcement, aviation, and immigration. en_US
