The State of the Hong Kong Labor Movement

A Discussion with Bill Taylor

New Books Network 2021

What is happening to the labor movement in Hong Kong? Why was May Day this year such a muted commemoration? And how have recent political upheavals in Hong Kong affected the work of trade unionists there?

Bill Taylor, associate professor in the Department of Public Policy at City University of Hong Kong, discusses the plight of organized labor in Hong Kong with Hong Yu Liu, a PhD student in sociology at the University of Cambridge, who recently spent a month in virtual residency at the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies.
