Summary: 

This paper aims to provide answers to three important questions stemming from this development:
1. What has been the extent of violent Uighur opposition to Chinese rule?
2. Can this opposition be defined as constituting terrorism and is there evidence of
connections between Uighur organisations and such groups as Al Qaeda and the
IMU?
3. Is the case of Xinjiang and the Uighur consistent with the human security theory
of terrorism?
