Balancing Freedom and Security: the Hong Kong National Security Law

While the Hong Kong National Security Law will operate within the One Country Two Systems framework, it is set to have a significant and long lasting impact on Hong Kong’s legal system. This and several forthcoming seminars organized by the Faculty of Law and its research Centres will review the new legislation and its implications. Participating experts from different backgrounds will shed light on the challenges arising from, and rule of law responses to, the new national security regime in Hong Kong. This opening seminar aims to offer an introduction to the overall structure of the legislation, to highlight issues of concern and to suggest ways forward.
