Lies and Truth: Vocational Education and Training in Xinjiang

Beginning in the 1990s, terrorism driven by religious extremism wrecked havoc across northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

On the premise of creating a caliphate, terrorists committed bombings, stabbings and incited mass riots that saw hundreds of police officers killed in the line of duty and countless civilian lives lost.

Last August, China released a white paper that laid out detailed strategy in combating terrorism. The paper focused on the importance of vocational education and training centers, which were set up to redirect people away from religious extremism and provide trainees with the professional skills necessary for them to reenter society.

However, some Western politicians and media outlets kept attacking China's response to terrorism in Xinjiang. They slandered China by saying that the vocational training centers are "concentration camps" and the authorities are carrying out "indoctrination", which is completely calling white black and ill-intentioned.
