The architecture of repression
Unpacking Xinjiang’s governance

Vicky Xiuzhong Xu | 01 Oct 2021 | The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office provided ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre (ICPC) with a grant of A$116,770 for this project, of which this report is a key output. Other components of the project can be found at the Xinjiang Data Project website: https://xjdp.aspi.org.au/. Additional research costs were covered from ASPI ICPC’s mixed revenue base—which spans governments, industry and civil society. This project would not have been possible without 2020–21 funding from the US State Department, which supports the Xinjiang Data Project
The architecture of repression: Unpacking Xinjiangs governance

Vicky Xu | By examining the Chinese party-state’s governance methods, this report purports to illustrate how human rights abuses are being carried out in Xinjiang and by whom. It claims mass campaigns aimed at political realignment are not artefacts of a bygone era. It also claims they are occurring at a time when Chinese society is more tightly connected with the world than ever before, and pursued along racial and religious lines in Xinjiang with profound social impacts.
