A Collective Present
Roundtable discussion
“permanent in-transit”

This discussion featuring human rights lawyers and Vietnamese refugees will revisit the refugees’ experience of spending their youth in Hong Kong’s detention centers during the post-1975 Vietnamese refugee crisis. We will unpack various asylum policies that emerged at the time, and discuss how a team of human rights lawyers led by Pam Baker helped them gain refugee status prior to the closure of the last Vietnamese refugee camp in Hong Kong in 2000. The lawyers will also discuss their efforts that led to the historic introduction of the Unified Screening Mechanism by the Hong Kong government in 2014.
