Featuring Jeffrey Wasserstrom and Mary Kay Magistad on February 18, 2020

Are we witnessing the end of Hong Kong as we know it - or is this the biggest challenge yet to China’s authoritarian rule? This week on the podcast, World Affairs looks at what’s driving the protests in Hong Kong and why the demonstrations have persisted for so long. The Council walks through the history of Hong Kong, right up to today with: Jeffrey Wasserstrom, professor of history at UC Irvine and author of Vigil: Hong Kong on the Brink, and former East Asia Correspondent for NPR and PRI’s The World, Mary Kay Magistad.
