Hong Kong Public Affairs and Social Service Society

London School of Economics and Political Science Students' Union

Proudly sponsored by Freshfields and Skadden, and supported by The British Council and The Hong Kong Society.


This website was launched in 2015 by Zoe Liu (Publications Officer 2015-16)



As the annual flagship event of the LSESU Hong Kong Public Affairs and Social Service

Society (HKPASS), the LSE Forum has been the most prestigious university debating

competition conducted in Cantonese amongst Hong Kong students since 2007. 2017

was the largest we have ever hosted, with 16 universities across the UK coming to join us.


The brightest minds from leading universities across the United Kingdom gather at the LSE to put forward and to defend their propositions on some of the most controversial global and local current affairs. It has always been an anticipated occasion for students to showcase their argumentative talents, as well as an opportunity to meet and socialise with students from various universities.


In the past, we have invited Ms. Noel Pun, Deputy Director-General of Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (HKETO) London and Ms. Elizabeth Wong Kit Wai, a proficient journalist and the former host of On a Clear Day (在晴朗的一天出發) at RTHK, as our Chief Adjudicators for the Grand Final.
