This seminar will discuss some “big picture” questions surrounding the Hong Kong National Security Law (NSL) and “One Country, Two Systems”(OCTS). What are the scenarios or options the HKSAR faces in the post-NSL era? What should HK society and the central authorities do to reduce tension, restore confidence and narrow the gap in the political divide? Is Hong Kong stuck due to a “Basic Law design flaw” and, if so, what is the design flaw and what are the remedies or solutions? Panel members will discuss these issues of concern from constitutional, legal and political perspectives. Our aim is to stimulate and promote continuing discussion and dialogue.
