Virtual Event | Exploring the Effects of Chinese Sanctions on European MEPs

Please be advised: This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Tuesday, July 13th. Register for the event here.

Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Nury Turkel and Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian of Axios for a moderated discussion with Reinhard Butikofer and Raphael Glucksmann, two MEPs who have been at the forefront of the fight to expose the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s genocide of the Uyghur people, who will speak about their experience living under Chinese “sanctions” and their continued advocacy on behalf of the Uyghurs.

Early this year, the U.S., Canada, EU, and United Kingdom announced the imposition of coordinated sanctions on two Chinese officials who orchestrated the Uyghur genocide. In retaliation, China sanctioned several lawmakers who have called for an end to the campaign against the Uyghur people, in a clear effort to dissuade political leaders from taking a strong stance on Chinese human rights violations. What impact have these efforts had on efforts to hold the CCP accountable for these crimes? Please join Hudson Institute for this important discussion.
