[About Policy Dialogue Series]
The Policy Dialogue Series is interactive and encourages the participation of the HKUST and EdUHK community. During the past two years, the Division of Public Policy (PPOL), Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and Department of Asian and Policy Studies (APS), The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK), have co-organized the Policy Dialogue Series featuring Professor Anthony Cheung (張炳良教授) as principal speaker. Currently Research Chair Professor of Public Administration in APS and an Adjunct Professor of HKUST PPOL, Professor Cheung is the former Secretary for Transport and Housing (2012-17) and former President of EdUHK (2008-12).
In the 2020-21 academic year, the two universities will cooperate again to host 6 new dialogue sessions. Professor Anthony Cheung will be joined by another professor (plus other speaker as appropriate) in the relevant field to explore some contemporary public policy challenges facing Hong Kong.
Due to the implementation of public health measures to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus on university campuses, the Policy Dialogue Series will adopt an online mode in Fall Term (2020-21 Academic Year) via zoom. If the situation allows in Spring Term (2020-21 Academic Year), an additional physical seminar will be held at HKUST/EdUHK campus. More details will be announced later. Please note that the arrangement is still subject to any final change depending on the pandemic development.
