US-Hong Kong Relations and the Response to Counter-terrorism
Simon Shen
HKIAPS, Occasional Paper Series
Hong Kong Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies, CUHK

The study of US-Hong Kong relations in the twenty-first century involves asymmetrical interactions between a superpower and a non-sovereign, incomplete political entity. US policy towards Hong Kong may be of low priority on the US policy-making agenda, but this does not mean that it can be overlooked. This paper suggests that a liberal grand strategy, as theorized by John Ikenberry, was to a certain extent applied when the US formulated its overall policy towards Hong Kong. Using this conceptual framework the paper studies US-Hong Kong relations after the resumption of Chinese sovereignty and discusses the application of this strategy in an age when imperial grand strategy tends to be the American option of choice, particularly since 9/11.
