About CUHKCAS

CAS-Logo2CUHKCAS stands for Cambridge University Hong Kong and China Affairs Society. We are open to anyone: those who are eager to learn, those with a strong passion, those who aspire to make a difference to society. Whether you are seeking for inspiration, or to be the inspiration, CUHKCAS provides a platform for your voice to be heard, your ideas to be shared.

CUHKCAS is a student-run, non-profit making society at the University of Cambridge. Since its founding twenty-six years ago, CUHKCAS has strived to promote interest in the social, economic and political affairs of Hong Kong and China. While standing firm in our values and objectives, we aim to progress concordantly with developments in the two regions. It is the support from several hundreds of our active members that spurs us on to continue in the Society's established successes and to bring CUHKCAS to reach new heights. This year, we promise to deliver to the utmost of our ability yet another exciting and enriching year.

Flagships

Cambridge Hong Kong Affairs Essay Competition

In line with the aim to broaden and promote understanding of social, economic and political affairs in Hong Kong and China.
