We were honoured to have the author of the book, Professor Albert H.Y Chen, who is currently the Cheng Chan Lan Yue Professor in Constitutional Law at the University of Hong Kong, preside over the launch and introduce the book to participants. The Moderator of the webinar was Professor Fu Hualing, Warren Chan Professor in Human Rights and Responsibilities, Dean of the Faculty of Law at the University of Hong Kong.
