Revamp of anti-discrimination laws should cover more contentious issues

2016-03-29

Puja Kapai, who is an Associate Law Professor at the University of Hong Kong, says while the proposals are very encouraging, there is room for compromise to offer protection to people like same-sex couples. She tells Jim Gould that the commission should take the lead and bring the various parties together to agree on issues that are opposed by some sectors of the community.
