About this Event

Recent events in Hong Kong—demonstrations triggered by the government's controversial extradition bill, escalating clashes between police and protesters, and the occupation of the international airport—have increased awareness of a "domestic” issue that has regional if not international implications. It is crucial for us to engage with these developments, especially as they are happening in a city where around 140,000 Filipinos reside. The Kritika Kultura Lecture Series on Hong Kong, China, and the Philippines aims to cover topics such as security, Philippines-China relations, "One Country Two Systems," and the cultural underpinnings of the protests; the lectures seek to show that even within a situation of crisis, there is hope for resistance and renewal.
