The Perfect Storm: Hong Kong's Political Crisis

How do we understand what's happening in Hong Kong? Is this a turning point where, by showing up in the millions to protest, Hong Kong has bought itself time against the encroachment of China’s political system, or is this merely a local revolt against a deeply unpopular leader and her policies?

Panellists will draw from their disciplinary perspectives to discuss events, including the information war that is unfolding in the streets and cyberspace; the extradition bill and post-1997 governance in Hong Kong – the unreformed colonial system meets the People's Republic of China; and Hong Kong’s diminishing role in China’s economic future.
