Uyghur Tribunal

The Uyghur Tribunal is an independent people's tribunal based in the United Kingdom that aims to examine evidence regarding China's human rights abuses against the Uyghur people and to evaluate whether the abuses constitute genocide under the Genocide Convention. The tribunal is chaired by Geoffrey Nice, the lead prosecutor in the trial of Slobodan Milošević, who announced the creation of the tribunal in September 2020. The tribunal aims to issue its final determination on whether the government of the People's Republic of China has committed genocide against Uyghurs no later than December 2021. The tribunal's final determination will not legally bind any government to take action, but organizers hope that the tribunal's hearings and reports may spur international action and help to hold China to account for its abuse of the Uyghurs.
