UK Times Higher Education named the head of Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Rocky Tuan as one of people of the year, being the only representative in Asia.
Compared to the inaction of other university heads in Hong Kong, Tuan was praised for going to the war-like campus of CUHK when it was besieged by the Hong Kong police in November. He had hoped to solve the confrontation in a civil way. Although the police fired tear gas grenades, Tuan was escorted away by protesters in the end.
