Since its beginning in June, the Hong Kong extradition bill fallout has turned one of the world's financial hubs into an urban war zone and become the largest political unrest the city has witnessed. Five months into the crisis, the streets of Hong Kong remain as tense and volatile as ever.

Jason Y. Ng (IHRP Alum, JD 2001), lawyer, author and activist, explains how the protests came to be, what the protesters want, and where the city is heading.

Moderated by Vincent Wong, Adjunct Professor and William C. Graham Research Associate at the IHRP.

Open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
