When handed over from British to Chinese rule in 1997, Hong Kong’s special autonomous status was guaranteed by the principle of “one country, two systems” for fifty years. Since then, this status has been eroded. From the Umbrella Movement in 2014 to large-scale protests against the “Extradition Bill” and the “National Security Law ” in 2019 and 2020, Hong Kong has become an epicenter of contentions. In light of these events, the experts of this panel will share their observations and insights on the judicial, political, and social developments in Hong Kong.
