Survey on Uyghurs

My name is Henryk Szadziewski and I am a Masters student in Development Studies at The University of Wales. I lived and worked in Kashgar for 3 years in the Nineties and have continued my interest in Uyghur issues over the years.

As part of my studies I am researching the impact of the Great Western Development Drive. I want to understand how far Uyghur people have participated in the formation of Great Western Development Drive policy and projects. To this end I have written a survey which I would like Uyghur people to complete. I believe that the survey will provide important evidence of the effects of the Great Western Development Drive on the Uyghur population. It is this information that I would like to present to the academic community and therefore increase awareness of the political and economic consequences of the Great Western Development Drive.

I would like you to consider sending this survey to any Uyghur contacts you have or to post it on any forums your website contains. The survey is attached to this email and is in English. Naturally this assumes that recipients will be able to understand English.
