There has been considerable negative reaction in the Western world to the introduction of the National Security Law in Hong Kong in 2020. Some critics even suggested that “One country, two systems” has come to an end in Hong Kong. In this seminar, the speakers will discuss the past, present and future of “One country, two systems” in Hong Kong with reference to their latest research. Professor Meyer will talk about his book project on the impact of the National Security Law and China’s latest Hong Kong policy on Hong Kong as an international financial centre. Professors Albert Chen and Po Jen Yap will present some aspects of their recently published book entitled The Constitutional System of the Hong Kong SAR: A Contextual Analysis (Hart Publishing, 2023).
