FLASH PANEL: Hong Kong in Crisis

Author: Christine Cox

Hk Flash Panel2

About the panel

Since May, Hong Kong has seen ongoing protests, beginning with demonstrations against a controversial extradition bill proposed by the government and continuing as a pro-democracy movement. It is estimated that the protests have attracted two million people—two out of seven residents of the 7.5 people who live in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. This flash panel of experts and eyewitnesses will examine the causes of the continued dissent, Beijing’s potential response and how the protests may affect Hong Kong’s future.
