Dr Brian Christopher Jones launches book at SOAS

Dr Brian Christopher Jones will today be attending a launch of his book Law and Politics of the Taiwan Sunflower and Hong Kong Umbrella Movements at University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).

Edited by Dr Jones, his collection brings together some of Asia’s, and especially Taiwan and Hong Kong’s, most prolific writers, many of whom are internationally recognised experts in their respective fields. The book addresses the legal and political significance of both movements, including the complex questions they posed as regards democracy, rule of law, authority, and freedom of speech.

The book launch begins at 7:00pm on 14 December 2017, at University of London's Russell Square: College Buildings in room KLT.

Further details about this launch can be found on the SOAS webpage.

The event is organised by SOAS' Centre of Taiwan Studies.
