    Abstract

    Using a tripartite system of analysis, consisting of economic, political and ethnic dimensions, an analysis will be made of the treatment of Xinjiang UAR by the central Chinese government. This experience will be compared specifically to the way African nations are dealt with by the Chinese government. This comparison aims to highlight that Xinjiang UAR's position within China is more akin to that of an African nation – where neo-colonial policies appear to guide the Chinese government, leaving Xinjiang being treated as a colonial possession rather than a core Chinese province.
