The Chinese government has breached every single article of the UN genocide convention in its treatment of Uighurs in Xinjiang, and bears responsibility for committing genocide, according to a landmark legal report.

The 25,000-word report, published by a non-partisan US-based thinktank, is one of the first independent, non-government legal examination of China’s treatment of Uighurs under the 1948 genocide convention.

Reports on the Uighurs have led to increasing international outrage and diplomatic and economic isolation.

The US administration has already described the persecution of the Uighurs as a genocide.

In Beijing on Monday, China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, told reporters that claims of genocide in Xinjiang “could not be more preposterous”.

Under the UN convention, signed by 152 countries including China, a finding of genocide can be made if a party violates any one of five defined acts.

In creating the report, all available and verifiable evidence was studied by dozens of experts on international law, genocide studies, Chinese ethnic policies and China, the institute said. »

The study found that Christian nationalism was the second best predictor of anti-vaccine attitudes among Americans.

Conservatism, libertarianism, and anti-science attitudes characterize the movement, and the researchers propose that at the heart of these beliefs is one prevailing ideology — Christian nationalism.

The study, “How Culture Wars Delay Herd Immunity: Christian Nationalism and Anti-vaccine Attitudes”, was authored by Andrew L. Whitehead and Samuel L. Perry. »
