Hong Kong Protests: The End of the Tunnel?
Saturday 5 Oct, 6pm
Straits Clan Attic, Level 4
The protests in Hong Kong have been a focal point for regional politics, not just for its implications on domestic Chinese politics, but also for the reactions and viewpoints from observers all around Asia and indeed, the world. Speculations on how this could all end range from the optimistic to the cataclysmic — but the learning points and diagnosis of the issues are becoming increasingly clearer. Donald provides a unique perspective on events, combining his experiences in the Singapore public service, being a professor of public policy in Hong Kong and walking the streets with the protestors themselves.
This session will be moderated by Dominic Soon and is presented by Feed.
