Hong Kong Elections

The recent protests in Hong Kong have focused on the process for selecting Hong Kong’s next Chief Executive, and the PRC’s commitment to the concept of universal suffrage. Since the handover in 1997, many Hong Kong residents hoped that the future would bring full and free elections without Beijing’s direct involvement, reflecting the true will of the people, and refining “One Country, Two Systems.” However, it has become clear that Beijing has something very different in mind.

Join us as our expert panel discusses how this issue affects the future of Hong Kong and reverberates through U.S.-China relations.
