Hong Kong social policy at a crossroads

Activity: Talks or PresentationsOther Invited Talks or Presentations


In the wake of the global Covid-19 pandemic, decreasing mental well-being, accelerating societal ageing, and a looming long-term care crisis, the productivist welfare settlement in the global city Hong Kong has increasingly come under pressure. In this first plenary, we invite four local experts to share their research and vision on the future of social policy in Hong Kong. Each panel member will be given around 5-8 minutes to present before the floor will be opened for questions and comments from the audience.
