Professor David Law, Sir YK Pao Professor of Public Law, was recently interviewed by the Hong Kong Economic Journal on United States-Hong Kong relations. The interview focused on the Hong Kong Policy Act, whether and how it might be amended, and more generally how Congress can influence US policy/treatment towards Hong Kong. In the interview, Law drew an analogy to the Taiwan Relations Act and discussed how the separation of powers system in the US gives Congress various options for influencing government policy short of amending legislation (e.g., influencing the State Department through the budget process).
