Beijing’s Hong Kong Policy

Beijing’s Changing Hong Kong Policy: The Rise and Fall of Pragmatism” (DOI: 10.1080/00472336.2022.2084767) is a new article by Joseph Yu-shek Cheng of the Institute for Security and Development Policy, Stockholm, Sweden.

The abstract for the article states:

Through a historical account of Beijing’s Hong Kong policy since the Sino-British negotiations in the early 1980s, the article attempts to analyse its major considerations and limitations. This analysis is intended to shed light on the contradictions between the Chinese authorities and Hong Kong people, and especially the local pro-democracy movement. The performance of civil society organisations, and Hong Kong people’s values and attitudes as reflected by public opinion surveys are also considered. Significant emphasis is accorded to the recent political suppression in Hong Kong following the Occupy Central Campaign. While Beijing is now in control, the heavy political price it will pay is also examined.
