Feb 06, 2024 | 04:00 PM - 06:00 PM
This talk takes place at GEAS and hybrid - a Webex Link can be found below

The presentation will address and explain the impact of COVID19 on the trends of development in police organization, operation and interaction with citizens in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Two significant and contradictory evolutions in varying policing contexts - expansion and/or delegation of police authorities would be highlighted and discussed in the (post) public health crisis.

Lawrence Ka-Ki HO is Assistant Professor at The Education University of Hong Kong since 2015. A historian by training, he is an interdisciplinary researcher concentrated on the sociology of policing and criminology since his faculty appointment in 2009. In the last decade, he has been on the track of three major research directions: comparative policing, criminal justice and governance. He successfully got funding from universities, government and NGOs, managed several research projects and teamed up with fellow local and overseas scholars and practitioners for academic, policy and knowledge transfer projects in the past five years. Among his recent publications is “Patterns of collective action during the 2019 protests in Hong Kong: policing, social identity, intergroup dynamics, and radicalisation” and ”Rethinking Police Legitimacy in Post-colonial Hong Kong: Paramilitary Policing in Protest Management”, which were both published in Policing: A Journal of Policy & Practice (SSCI); “Professionalism vs Democracy? Historical and Institutional Analysis of Police Oversight Mechanism in Three Asian Jurisdictions” in Crime Law and Social Change (SSCI); “Explaining confidence in the police within transitional Hong Kong: the influence of postmaterial values”  in Policing and Society (SSCI).
