The promulgation of the National Security Law by Beijing is a paradigm shift for Hong Kong's legal and political environment. The concept of 'national security' under the People's Republic of China (PRC) law is broad and overarching. In combination with this and other restrictions from Beijing, the National Security Law has created a new environment under which international businesses and NGOs need to understand the risks they face. During this discussion, Dennis Kwok, Senior Fellow at the Ash Center, and Elizabeth Donkervoort, Program Director for East Asia, American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative, will further explore these issues, also outlined in their recently published joint paper, "The Risks for International Business under the Hong Kong National Security Law."
