 The Anti-extradition Bill Protests:

What They Show about Hong Kong's High Degree of Autonomy



 Frank Ching


Please join us for a talk by Frank Ching, a journalist and writer who has reported and commented on events in Asia, particularly China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, for many years. He worked for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and the Far Eastern Economic Review and was a columnist with the South China Morning Post. He opened The Wall Street Journal’s bureau in China in 1979, after the normalization of U.S.-China relations, thus becoming one of the first four American newspaper reporters to be based in Beijing since 1949.

Currently, he writes a weekly column on China, which he self-syndicates and appears in English-language newspapers mainly in Asia. For the last 15 years, he was adjunct associate professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology where he taught a course on China’s External Relations.

He is the author of “ANCESTORS: 900 Years in the Life of a Chinese Family,” (Morrow, N.Y. 1988). Using his own family as a vehicle, he presented a history of China from the Sung dynasty to the present. Another of his books is “130 Years of Medicine in Hong Kong: From the College of Medicine for Chinese to the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine,” published in 2018 by Springer.
