Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Hong Kong and Its Discontents

VENUE:Present Day Club

Hong Kong and Its Discontents

| Asia Program

About the Event

Jacques deLisleThough it began as a dispute over new extradition legislation, the worsening unrest in Hong Kong appears to be about larger questions about autonomy, democracy and rule of law. To explore the roots of the current crisis and assess its potential future trajectory, we are pleased to feature Jacques deLisle, Director of FPRI’s Asia Program and the Stephen Cozen Professor of Law at UPenn. He serves regularly as an expert witness on issues of PRC, Hong Kong and Taiwan law and government policies.

See his latest essay “Hong Kong’s Summer of Discontent.”

(Note: This event is in place of an event announced earlier featuring John Gans on White House Warriors, which will be moved to another time and venue.)
