National Security and China’s Hong Kong

The National Security Law, enacted by the Standing Committee of China’s National People’s Congress, went into force upon promulgation on June 30, 2020. A panel of speakers will discuss the concept of national security as it is understood internationally by governments, and the application of the National Security Law in Hong Kong. They will analyze the various crimes that come under the new law, and discuss how the law will be enforced under the "One Country, Two Systems" formula and within the context of Hong Kong’s "high degree of autonomy". The panel will also address Hong Kong people’s concerns about whether the new law would affect their legitimate rights and freedoms and way of life.
