Is “Gaituguiliu” Still Feasible in Hong Kong?

The Young Diplomats Society is excited to be publishing an article by Professor Baogang He, an Alfred Deakin Professor and Chair in International Relations at the School of Humanities and Social Sciences within the Faculty of Arts & Education at Deakin University.

Graduating with a PhD in Political Science from the Australian National University in 1994, Professor He has become widely known for his work in Chinese democratisation and politics, in particular the deliberative politics in China as well as in Asian politics covering Asian regionalism, Asian federalism and Asian multiculturalism.

Professor He has published 6 single-authored books, 1 co-authored book, 5 co-edited books, 79 international refereed journal articles, and 66 book chapters. His publications are found in top journals including the British Journal of Political Science, Journal of Peace Research, Political Theory, Political Studies, and Perspectives on Politics. In addition, he has published 3 books, 15 book chapters and 63 journal papers in Chinese.

In this article, Professor He explores the possibility of Gaituguilu ( 改土归流 ) as a framework for relations between mainland China and Hong Kong moving forward. Originally published in Chinese, the article has been translated by editor Jonathan Lim.
