In this podcast, Dr Margaret Ng, member of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong between 1995 and 2012 and a founding member of the pro-democracy Basic Law Article 23 Concern Group, discusses the implications of the national security law recently enacted in Hong Kong by China, in conversation with IBA Multimedia Journalist Jennifer Venis.

The law has come under criticism for its draconian measures and a lack of consultation pre-implementation with the people of Hong Kong, and is widely seen as undermining the established concept of ‘one country, two systems’.
