Schona Jolly QC interviewed on International Human Rights Law on the situation of Uyghurs in Xinjiang, China


Schona Jolly QC was interviewed on the Better Human podcast, alongside Agnès Callamard, United Nations Human Rights Council Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions on the international human rights law implications arising out of the reports of widespread and systematic persecution of over a million Uyghur and other Turkic Muslim people in Xinjiang, China, including on the forced ‘re-education’ in concentration camps. Following the high profile report on the subject which she co-authored and led, as Chair of the Bar Human Rights Committee of England & Wales, she was asked what is being done to stop it and how can human rights ideas and institutions help?
