Lunch Meeting – Law and Humanities – Tiger Mothers and Children’s Rights: When Culture and Law Speak Different Languages
Lunch Meeting – Law and Humanities – Tiger Mothers and Children’s Rights: When Culture and Law Speek Different Languages
New lunch meeting in the series on Law and Humanities at the Centre for Studies in Legal Culture (CRS).
The next lunch lecture in the series will take place at Tuesday May 2nd 2017 where Associate Professor Anne Scully-Hill, Faculty of Law, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, will focus on the following questions and issues:
- To what extent is the 'tiger mother' part of Hong Kong Chinese culture? Does the Hong Kong counterpart differ from the cultural transplant that is the Chinese-American phenomenon? If so, why might this be?
- What is the effect of imposing culturally 'English' family laws on culturally Hong Kong Chinese parents and children? This is the state of play currently in Hong Kong and this, some believe, has lead to a relative 'failure' of family law either to regulate or to educate.
- If the 'tiger mother' approach to parenting is indeed a Hong Kong cultural practice, how much respect should be paid to this approach by policy-makers, legislators and judges, particularly in light of other competing norms?"
