The Crisis in Hong Kong: What's at Stake?
September 18, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Mānoa Campus, William S. Richardson School of Law, Davis Levin Livingston, Moot Courtroom
The Pacific-Asian Legal Studies (PALS) Program at the William S. Richardson School of Law in co-sponsorship with the Center for Chinese Studies, Asian Studies Program, Matsunaga Institute for Peace, and the Institute of Asian-Pacific Business Law presents "The Crisis in Hong Kong: What's at Stake?"
After three months of mass protests, Hong Kong is in a state of crisis. Demonstrations against a controversial proposal to allow extradition to Mainland China have escalated into a much broader public protest against Beijing's increased interference in the "high degree of autonomy" that was promised when Hong Kong transitioned from a British Colony to a Special Administrative Region of China.
Academics who have lived and worked in Hong Kong will analyze the underlying causes of the unrest and the implications for "One Country, Two Systems" as a form of regional autonomy.
