Where is Hong Kong’s Lion Rock Spirit?

A Conversation with Tze-wei Ng

Recorded in January 2019

Global Futures is a podcast about global politics and how rising powers like China and India are transforming it. We discuss foreign policy, economics, war and peace, and how the world is changing with experts from across the world.

Hong Kong has recently returned to the spotlight, as China cracks down on critics and pro-democracy activists in the city. Many Hong Kong observers see the erosion of the city’s civil liberties and democratic freedoms as a sign of China breaching the “one country, two systems” framework – established at the 1997 handover of Hong Kong from the United Kingdom to China – which allows the region to retain an economic and administrative system separate from that of China.

In this episode of the Global Futures podcast Joel Sandhu from the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) is joined by Tze-wei Ng to talk about Hong Kong’s current status and its future. Tze-wei is a lecturer teaching media law, as well as a project and legal consultant in Hong Kong. She is also a GGF 2030 fellow.
