[Symposium] Hong Kong: 20 Years After

[Updated 3 May 2017: Thank you very much for coming out to support the official launch of the UBC Hong Kong Studies Initiative. For friends who might have missed the Symposium, here are the webcast, photos, and news coverage for the event.]

The past two decades have not been the best of times for Hong Kong. What have been the sources of tensions for this former British colony? As Hong Kong is set to enter the Carrie Lam era, what promises does Deng Xiaoping’s formulation of “One Country, Two Systems” still hold for this special administrative region of China? Please join our distinguished panel for conversations and reflections:
