It’s nearly one year since China imposed the Hong Kong National Security Law which has been the focus of intense protests.
In this episode of World Review, Louisa Lim joins Jeremy Cliffe and Emily Tamkin to discuss Hong Kong’s relationship with Beijing, and what impact the National Security Law has had on democracy in the region – including the recent closure of pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily.
In You Ask Us they take your question on what the international response should be to China’s assault on democracy in Hong Kong.
