Can Democracy Survive in Hong Kong?

Jason Buhi is an assistant professor at Barry University’s Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law where he teaches courses in constitutional law and election law. Prior to that, Jason taught for four years at the Peking University School of Transnational Law in China. He earned his J.D. from Penn State and his Ph.D. from the University of Hong Kong. 

Jason was first introduced to China as a Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholar, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek in Frederick, Maryland, and the Rotary Club of Hong Kong North. He was present in Hong Kong during the pro-democracy Umbrella Movement of 2014 and the challenging events of this summer, both of which he will speak of today. His most recent journal article, “America’s New Covenant with Hong Kong: The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019,” will be published later this year.

Guests most welcome, reservation required.
