The confrontation between pro-democracy protesters and Hong Kong’s government has dominated world headlines. China’s Communist Party, which rules Hong Kong as part of its “one country, two systems” agreement, seems determined to end the protests even if force is required. What’s at stake for the United States and the world if Hong Kong is crushed?

Bowring is a British journalist based in Hong Kong since 1973. He is a two-time president of the Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents Club, former editor of the Far Eastern Economic Review, and has been a correspondent for the Financial Times and Asian Wall Street Journal and columnist for the International Herald Tribune. His latest book is Empire of the Winds: The Global Role of Asia’s Great Archipelago. Books will be available for sale.

Moderating will be Pete Engardio, who was based in Hong Kong for Business Week magazine and who currently serves on the OPC board of governors.
