Asia-Pacific and South Asia

Nathan Law is a pro-democracy activist from Hong Kong. He gained prominence as one of the student leaders during the 2014 Umbrella Revolution and later co-founded the pro-democracy Demosistō movement. In September 2016, he was elected to serve as a legislator for Hong Kong Island at the age of 23, making him the youngest lawmaker in the history of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong. However, his seat was overturned in July 2017 as a result of Beijing’s constitutional reinterpretation, despite international criticism.
