This seminar explores the possible extraterritorial application of the Hong Kong National Security Law (NSL) based on both the personality principle and protective principle. Speakers in the panel will identity the reach and potential overreach of this long-arm legislation and examine legal and diplomatic challenges that the NSL may face in implementation.
