Omtale Academic Freedom in Hong Kong
In Academic Freedom in Hong Kong, Jan Currie, Carole J. Petersen, and Ka Ho Mok explore the unique situation in Hong Kong, a tiny jurisdiction in which there is active protection for the freedom of expression despite the close proximity and relationship with mainland China. Hong Kong scholars and intellectuals assume the responsibility of public critics, but this is not without an element of crisis. The authors draw upon interviews with academics and university administrators and examine two historical incidents that led to a strengthening of academic freedom, as well as the legal and political ramifications affecting the present and future. This book will interest East Asian scholars and academics in universities around the world where freedom of expression is threatened in this time of heightened security.
