This conference aims to raise European awareness of the oppression of Mongols within China and provide a comprehensive introduction to the human rights abuses they are subject to.
As an ethnic, cultural, and linguistic minority within the region, Mongol communities are subject to myriad discriminatory practices by Chinese authorities. The sustained oppression Mongols experience is both geopolitical and ethnic in nature. In these communities, the foremost sources of suffering are internal displacements, as a result of environmental degradation and land-grabbing, as well as ethnic discrimination, particularly regarding their religious and political identities. Mongols are denied political and civil rights in addition to land rights, while suffering widespread human rights violations all the while. Their disenfranchisement is the result of long-term and compounded repression, which leaves them with few viable alternative paths to empowerment.
