Church Court Chambers’ Michael Polak was chosen to speak at this high-level conference about the treatment of the Uyghur minority within China which was jointly organised by the World Uyghur Congress, the Uyghur Human Rights Project, the Uyghur American Association, and George Washington University’s Central Asia Program and ran over 6 and 7 June 2019 at the US Capitol Building and George Washington University.

Michael was chosen to speak on a panel on International Legal & Political Perspectives because of his knowledge of international law and his keen interest in helping oppressed people around the world. The conference brought together experts from the political, media, academic, and legal spheres along with Uyghur people who gave evidence about the international crimes committed against them by the Chinese authorities.
