Negotiating Inseparability in China

Chapter Three reveals the tendency for Xinjiang Class graduates to seek opportunities abroad or in inner China instead of returning to Xinjiang. Considering the pressures China’s Ministry of Education and Xinjiang’s provincial-level government place on these Uyghurs to return to Xinjiang after their formal education, this chapter interprets these students’ decisions to not return as a tacit expression of ethno-national identity, which takes the form of resistance to political culture.
