Lecture: Hong Kong's 2019 protests in historical perspective

Hong Kong’s 2019 anti-Extradition Bill protests have captured the imagination of observers around the world with their “Be Water” tactics and creative resistance. But what are their claims? Can Hong Kong achieve democratic governance after its return to China in 1997? How do Hongkongers understand their own identity?

Sebastian Veg is a professor of intellectual history of modern and contemporary China at EHESS, Paris and an honorary professor at the University of Hong Kong, where he lived from 2006 to 2015.

When: September 18th, 19:00-20:30
