Constitutional Crisis in Hong Kong: Two Years After the Umbrella Movement Speaker: Michael Davis, Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellow, National Endowment for Democracy Moderator: Andrew Nathan, Class of 1919 Professor of Political Science After an “umbrella movement” and a constitutional crisis that has stolen global headlines over much of the past couple years where does Hong Kong stand today? The governments at both levels have failed to meet their commitments to Hong Kong. The excessive liberty Beijing has taken with the Basic Law has put Hong Kong’s cherished rule of law at risk, while the Hong Kong’s government’s failure to defend Hong Kong’s autonomy has failed both Beijing and Hong Kong society.
