After receiving her doctoral degree at the GTU this fall, Mee-Yin Mary Yuen (PhD, ’14) returned home to Hong Kong, where she recently wrote about the pro-democracy efforts of the student-led “Umbrella Movement” in her country. In a potent and concise article for AsiaNews entitled, “Justice and Peace: Occupy Central increases the Dignity and Political Consciousness of Hong Kong,” Yuen documents the critical moments in this unfolding event before summarizing how Catholic social teachings relate to and even encourage participation in the protests.
