Tensions in the Near East and Repression in the Far East

During today’s recording of JustLove, we are joined by Professor John Davenport, Ph.D., to discuss the escalating tensions between Ukraine and Russia in light of the “Just War Theory.” Another topical controversy is the upcoming opening of the 24th Winter Olympics in Beijing, China, which is overshadowed by the host’s repressive treatment of its estimated 3 million Uyghur population – a situation likened to genocide. Kayum Masimov, Project Manager of the Uyghur Rights Advocacy Project in Canada provides some insight as a member of the Uyghur Diaspora Community.

John Davenport, Ph.D., is a Professor of Philosophy and Peace and Justice Studies at Fordham University. He shares his expertise on the unknown outcomes of the emerging threats of a conflict between Russia and Ukraine, potentially drawing in NATO and other entities.

Kayum Masimov, who is the Project Manager and Organizer of The Uyghur Rights Advocacy Project in Canada, joins our recording to have a critical discussion about the repressive treatment of the Uyghur people in China, which is about to host the 24th Winter Olympics.
