Don't miss SupChina's recent "Sinica Podcast" episode, discussing the securitization of Xinjiang and Tibet and the growing assimilationism in China's minority policies, featuring Elliott School Research Professor Tashi Rabgey. Podcast hosts Kaiser Kuo and Jeremy Goldkorn brought together Rabgey and Georgetown Professor Jim Millward for a critical discussion of China's politics of ethnic minorities and the processes of assimilation at a time of heightened tension in both regions. An expert on regional governance and multination statehood, Professor Rabgey analyzed the ethnicization of the issues and explained why territorial politics, or "territoriality," provide a corrective for understanding the real stakes in the securitization of both regions, remarking, "It's been a long time since we've been able to make visible the relationship between peoples and space." For more on these and other critical issues, check out the podcast episode in its entirety.
