Auch in der deutschen Medienlandschaft wird immer mehr über die prekäre Situation der Uigur*innen in Xinjiang berichtet. Wir sehen Bilder von Schulen, die eher an Gefängnisse erinnern und hören Interviews mit Zeug*innen, die Schlimmstes berichten. Florian Frenzel hat sich in seiner Masterarbeit näher mit diesen Umständen beschäftigt. Dabei wollte er herausfinden, wie das neue Großprojekt Chinas, die neue Seidenstraße, damit zusammenhängt. Was er alles über die vorherrschenden Maßnahmen und Motivationen Chinas herausgearbeitet hat, erfahrt ihr in dieser Folge vom Podcast.
