Cora Chan, member of CCPL Board of Management and CCPL Fellow, co-edited a new book China’s National Security: Endangering Hong Kong’s Rule of Law? Contributors to this book include Prof Albert Chen, Prof Fu Hualing and Prof Simon Young, also members of CCPL Board of Management and CCPL Fellows. All states are challenged by the need to protect national security while maintaining the rule of law, but the issue is particularly complex in the China–Hong Kong context. This timely and important book explores how China conceives of its national security and the position of Hong Kong. It considers the risks of introducing national security legislation in Hong Kong, and Hong Kong’s sources of resilience against encroachments on its rule of law that may come under the guise of national security. It points to what may be needed to maintain Hong Kong’s rule of law once China’s 50-year commitment to its autonomy ends in 2047. Click here to see more information.
