The International Society for Third-Sector Research (ISTR) wrote to Mrs Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of Hong Kong Government, today (12 Nov 2018) to express our concern over the charge of Professor Kin-man Chan.  Chan is the Secretary of ISTR, and Associate Professor of Sociology at The Chinese University of Hong Kong.  Our statement points out that Chan's scholarship on civil society is widely recognized with the academic community throughout the world. He is also known as someone committed to promoting peaceful action for universal suffrage. ISTR is urging the justice system in Hong Kong to drop the charges against Professor Kin-man Chan.
