Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism in China: Domestic and Foreign Policy Dimensions
China’s problem with terrorism has historically been considered to be an outgrowth of Beijing’s efforts to integrate the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) into the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Since the end of the Cold War however this internal dynamic has converged with an evolving external environment to stimulate the development of linkages between Uyghur separatism and terrorism, and broader terrorist movements in Central Asia, South Asia and the Middle East. This two day conference brought together some of the leading Western and Chinese experts on China’s problems with, and policies to combat, terrorism.
