Guardian: Oxford moves to protect students from China’s Hong Kong security law
Tue September, 2020, Age: 3 years
In a move echoing its peers across the Atlantic, Oxford University is asking its students studying China to submit some papers anonymously and refrain from recording classes. This is to guard against the possibility of retribution from the sweeping new national security law implemented three months ago in Hong Kong. The powerful and vaguely defined extraterritorial claims outlined in the law have raised concerns for international students, as well as those living abroad with personal connections to Hong Kong and mainland China. During its short lifespan, the law has already been used to charge at least one Hong Kong activist with U.S. citizenship living abroad.
