I use “terrorism” advisedly because in the interactive map and data visualization that I have created, the data comes from Wikipedia and “terrorism” is used by the Chinese government to describe a range of activities, some of which may be terrorism, but some of which may be political unrest or clashes with the authorities. Two takeaways:
- Incidents are concentrated in Xinjiang province of China
- Call it terrorism, ethnic unrest, political protest — this is a chronic, on-going problem for China
This is a living document, so any China experts out there — please comment and improve.
