Hong Kong Press Freedom under the new Law



1500-1700, 05 Sep 2020


Zoom Webinar


The new National Security Law has sparked concerns about the fate of Hong Kong's press freedom. Cherian George of the Department of Journalism will be one of the panelists in a seminar on this topic organised by the Hong Kong University Faculty of Law. He will be talking about lessons from beyond China, based on his global research on media freedom and censorship. Also on the panel is Sharron Fast of HKU (who will be teaching media law in the School's MA in International Journalism Studies programme in the coming semester), and Chris Buddle of the South China Morning Post. The webinar is moderated by HKU Law Dean Hualing Fu. HKUST's Christine Loh, a former undersecretary in the Hong Kong government, is the discussant.
