Hong Kong, long one of Asia’s most economically vibrant cities, has now become a flashpoint in the deteriorating U.S.-China relationship. After months of popular protests in the city, the PRC National People’s Congress passed the deeply controversial Hong Kong National Security Law. This led to President Trump’s July 14 Executive Order suspending or eliminating special and differential treatment Hong Kong received under U.S. law. In Washington, pro-democracy activists have aggressively courted lawmakers and advocated for U.S. legislation supporting Hong Kong self-determination. Please join us for an online discussion on the questions facing Hong Kong and Washington. How should the United States think about its policies towards Hong Kong? How might these policies affect Hong Kong’s place in the world? What are the implications for the people of Hong Kong? Panelists include: Ambassador Kurt Tong, former American Consul General to Hong Kong, and Ying Lun “Allen” Fung, World Fellow and Political Assistant to Secretary for Development, HKSAR. David Rank, Jackson Senior Fellow and former Chargé d’affaires at the U.S. Embassy Beijing, will moderate the conversation. Please note that this is a Yale Jackson student-organized event. Attendance is limited to current Yale students, Yale faculty/staff, Yale alumni and World Fellows, and preregistration is required. It will not be recorded. false

      For many people, climate change is felt most directly through water. In some places, water scarcity is becoming commonplace while in others flooding threatens to destroy communities. The concerns go well beyond drought and flood. The webinar will explore the consequences of changed timing of precipitation and how it falls (as rain rather than snow). The questions we face could not be more critical: In times of drought, how will we allocate water between farms and cities? When the water runs out, how do we decide who gets to drink? And what technological and governance fixes are necessary to ensure sustainable access to water in the decades to come?
