The Bech-Loughlin First Amendment Center and the Asia Policy Program welcome Nury Turkel, Chair of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, to discuss his new book "No Escape: The True Story of China’s Genocide of the Uyghurs".

"No Escape: The True Story of China's Genocide of the Uyghurs" is a harrowing personal account of the biggest human rights crisis of the twenty-first century. It describes conditions in the Uyghur homeland, referred to by the Chinese government as the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. In the past few years, the entire region has been turned into an intensive surveillance state, with millions placed in modern-day “re-education” camps in what is the largest mass detention of an ethno-religious group since the Holocaust.

Join us in conversation with Nury Turkel and Dr. Sheena Greitens, Director of the Asia Policy Program at UT, to discuss this memoir and the questions it raises regarding the US and global policy response to the Chinese Communist Party.

Event will be held at the LBJ Bass Lecture Hall. Lunch will be offered beginning at 11:45am. Visitors may park for free in Lot 38.
