The World Uyghur Congress (WUC), in partnership with HASENE International and the International Union of East Turkistan NGOs (IUETO), organised the International Uyghur Forum (IUF) in Brussels from November 9-10, 2022 under the motto “Global Response to Uyghur Genocide”.
The Forum was convened to provide a global response to the genocide policy of the Chinese administration against Uyghurs and the peoples in East Turkestan by bringing together international academics, lawyers, politicians, civil society members and Uyghur representatives. Through a series of panel discussions and debates, the Forum discussed the issue of more effective inter-agency coordination against the Uyghur genocide and drew attention to China’s human rights violations.
Upon conclusion of the two-day event, IUF issued the Brussels Declaration which evaluates eight ongoing issues in East Turkistan and called upon all participants and relevant parties to take immediate action on 13 areas. The declaration was signed by Dolkun Isa, President of WUC; Mesud Gülbahar, Chairman of Hasene Int.; and Hidayetullah Oguzhan, President of IUETO
