In this edition of Wilson Center NOW we speak with the Kissinger Institute’s Schwarzman Fellow Bradley Jardine who discusses China’s government crackdown on the Uighurs in the Xinjiang Region of western China.  He also discusses how Europe and the United States are responding to increased repression in the region by Xi Jinping’s government.


Bradley Jardine is a political analyst and journalist who has been working on-the-ground to document China's growing economic and political presence in the countries of the former Soviet Union. He is interested in China's efforts to expand its military presence abroad, and in particular, the growing Sino-Russian security nexus in Central Asia. Bradley served as an editor of The Moscow Times from 2016 to 2017 and as South Caucasus correspondent for Eurasianet from 2017 to 2018. He holds a master's in Russian and Eurasian studies from the University of Glasgow (2016) and an MMS in global affairs from Tsinghua University in Beijing (2019).
