THE NEW REALITY OF HONG KONG

The pictures show a city crowded with people and building but peaceful. We know from the news that this has not been the case in the last few months and that HK is experiencing troubling time.

Hong Kong is being used as a live political lab: it has for years lived and developed under the UK government, with completely different values, even though tensions also existed between the local population and the colonisers. The return to China in Protected content though created a shock, as the mentality gap between the moderately democratic English rule and authoritarian Chinese rule is larger.

The new political and economic reality of Hong Kong in connection with the European Union is the topic of a lecture which takes place at the TU and I as a former sinologist, I am eager to hear what the experts have to say.
