On 2 September 2021, BHRC Chair, Schona Jolly QC, gave the opening keynote speech at an international conference at Newcastle University titled: “The Xinjiang Crisis: Genocide, Crimes against Humanity, Justice”. This was the first and largest international conference on Xinjiang since the issue has come to the wider attention of the world, bringing together scholars, lawyers and politicians from around the world working to raise awareness and promote accountability for alleged atrocity crimes in Xinjiang.

The keynote speech was titled: Can international law step in where diplomacy stands still? A recording is available here and the speech will be published shortly.
