Which country’s definition of human rights supports humans more, #China or the U.S.? What are #humanrights? In the U.S., Trump’s immigration policies were described by many as “inhumane,” the Black Lives Matter movement highlighted racial tensions, and over half a million Americans, unfortunately, died from COVID-19. In China, there have been constant concerns over freedom of speech, treatment of Uygurs in #Xinjiang, and national security issues concerning Hong Kong. But who is right?

Let’s see these eight young people debate these questions.

Proposition:

Zoon Ahmed Khan, researcher from Tsinghua University

Shen Zhourong, lecturer at Beijing International Studies University

Enoch Wong, Schwarzman scholar at Tsinghua University

Sunny Mewati, former director of academics at the National High School Debate League of China (NHSDLC)

Opposition:

Veronica Ludaka, student at China Women University

Wang Yixiao, president of Peking University’s English Debating Society

Ekaterina Kologrivaya, master student at Peking University

Wang Yuhang, a student of international journalism and communication at Tsinghua University

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
