Ep. 112: The 2019 Hong Kong Protests


Hong Kong has seen protests since March 2019, triggered by newly proposed legislation that allows Hong Kong citizens to be extradited to China or Taiwan. This is the latest round in a long conflict between the People's Republic of China seeking to exert more control over Hong Kong, and citizens of Hong Kong fighting to ensure their personal rights and freedoms.

Manoj Kewalramani returns to Episode 112 of The Pragati Podcast to help us understand the Hong Kong protests and put them in perspective.

The Pragati Podcast is a weekly talkshow on public policy, economics and international relations hosted by Pavan Srinath.

Manoj Kewalramani is a Fellow for China Studies at the Takshashila Institution. Before joining Takshashila, Manoj spent several years working in China in journalism, manufacturing and more.
