Hong Kong's Umbrella Movement

Author: Johannes Chan

In: The Round Table: The Commonwealth Journal of International Affairs, Vol 103, No 6, 2014, pp. 571-580

This article was written before the occupation of areas of Hong Kong had been ended by the authorities, so it is an initial response to the protests. It examines the causes of the movement and speculates about its wider implications for politics in Hong Kong and relations with China.
