Professor Hans van de Ven and M.Phil. student Angus Hui, featured in the LRB's 'Talking Politics' podcast about the protests in Hong Kong.


What is happening in Hong Kong? Talking Politics spoke to a professor of Chinese history and a Hong Kong journalist about the recent wave of protests there and try to discover what is really at stake on all sides. Who are the protestors? What are their core demands? Can these be met? And what will happen if they aren't? The podcast also explored the parallels with other protest movements around the world and looked at the possible knock-on effects, from Beijing to Taiwan.

With Professor Hans van de Ven, Professor of Modern Chinese History, and Angus Hui, M.Phil. student.
