The ITSS Verona's International System's Team focussing on China and Asia interview Joanna Chiu, a senior journalist for the Toronto Star, Canada’s largest newspaper, and the author of China Unbound: A New World Disorder. As a globally-recognized authority on China, she is a commentator for international broadcast media and was previously based for seven years in Beijing and in Hong Kong as a foreign correspondent, including for Agence France Presse (AFP) specializing in coverage of Chinese politics, economy and legal affairs for one of the world’s biggest news operations.

She shares her insighs on China's relationship with Italy, the Hong Kong protests and elaborates on China's human rights violations in the Uyghur Province and United Front Organisation which she touches upon in her book as well. A review of her book by Sandra Parcels, member of the ITSS Verona’s China and Asia team can be found here.

We regret that due to technical error the video was cut short abruptly. Nonetheless, we thank Joanna for her time and for her valuable insights on the pressing issues related to China.
