        Kenny Hong Kiu YUEN

        Kenny is currently completing an MPhil in History at the University of Hong Kong and waiting for the oral examination. His MPhil thesis, directed by Prof. John Carroll, is entitled “Humanitarianism and Politics: Hong Kong’s Vietnamese Refugee Crisis, 1975-79.” By studying the refugee crisis, the thesis investigates how the declining British Empire, Anglo-American relations, and human rights concerns during the Cold War era influenced Hong Kong’s situation. Kenny provides an international history of Hong Kong’s refugee crisis. Last spring, he presented his research at the Ninth Annual Conference of the Asian Studies Association of Hong Kong.

        Kenny’s interested areas include the British Empire after 1945, human rights in the Cold War era, and the Indochinese refugee crisis.
