Dr Kris Hartley published co-authored op-ed in the South China Morning Post

Kris Hartley, Assistant Professor at APS, has published a co-authored op-ed in the South China Morning Post. Co-authored with Donald Low of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, the article argues that the Hong Kong government must recognize that creating more space for community groups to respond to crises is a crucial and potentially life-saving strategy. When a crisis requires the action of every individual (for example, to get tested or vaccinated), it is crucial that social capital and informal social organising be accepted for their influence on personal decisions and behavior.
