China’s legislature has endorsed a national security law for Hong Kong that has triggered new protests in the territory and strained relations with the United States and Britain. The Hong Kong security law will alter the territory’s mini-constitution, or Basic Law, to require its government to enforce measures to be decided later by Chinese leaders. The Governments of the United States of America, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom condemned the action. International Edition’s Steve Miller spoke to RAND Corporation Senior Defense Analyst Derek Grossman about the developments and implications for the region.
