Martin Chung


Martin Chung is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government and International Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). He holds a PhD from the University of Hong Kong (2014) and a master's degree in European Studies from the University of Macau (2008). Previously, he was Research Assistant Professor of the European Union Academic Programme Hong Kong and a lecturer at the University of St. Joseph (Macau). His first monograph, Repentance for the Holocaust: Lessons from Jewish Thought for Confronting the German Past (Cornell University Press 2017) explores the role of religious ideas in German Vergangenheitsbewältigung (coming to terms with the past). In Reconciling with the Past: Resources and Obstacles in a Global Perspective (Routledge 2017, co-edited with Annika Frieberg), he analyses the ideas of apology and confession in Chinese and European contexts and the problem of their political application at present. At HKBU, he teaches the general education course "The World of Contemporary Europe" and major elective courses including "Contemporary Europe and Asia", "Government and Politics of the United Kingdom", and "Political Philosophy: Chinese and European".

Chung is the principal investigator of the funded project "The Politics of Antagonism Revisited: Assessing Northern Ireland's Good Friday Agreement (1998-2018)" under the Early Career Scheme of Hong Kong's Research Grants Council (研究資助局傑出青年學者計劃). He has also had active roles in several Model EU simulation exercises in Hong Kong, Macau and Tokyo.
