Rarely do acts of civil disobedience come in such grand fashion as Taiwan s Sunflower Movement and Hong Kong s Umbrella Movement. The two protests came in regions and jurisdictions that many have underestimated as regards furthering notions of political speech, democratization, a...nd testing the limits of authority. This book breaks down these two movements and explores their complex legal and political significance. The collection brings together some of Asia s, and especially Taiwan and Hong Kong s, most prolific writers, many of whom are internationally-recognised experts in their respective fields, to address the legal and political significance of both movements, including the complex questions they posed as regards democracy, rule of law, authority, and freedom of speech. Given that occupational type protests have become one method for protesters to make a significant statement and also affect public/governmental areas, exploring the legalities of such protests and establishing best practices will be important to future movements. With this in mind, the book does not stop at implications for Taiwan and Hong Kong, but talks about their subject-matter from a comparative, international perspective.
