Un/Controlling Desire, Becoming Others Negotiating Justice in the Hong Kong Milieu of Mainland Pregnant Women Influx
Author(s) Man-Chung Chiu*
In the article, I attempt to construct a singular perspective of justice by comparing different paradigms of justice— Rawlsian philosophy, Buddhist ideology and Deleuzean theory in the context of Hong Kong where there has been increasing resistance among local people against the influx of Mainland pregnant women, who are regarded as outsiders depriving the local community the much needed local (medical) resources.
