Martin Chung is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government and International Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) and a Visiting Research Fellow at Queen's University Belfast. 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. His articles have appeared in Parliamentary Affairs, International Journal of Transitional Justice, Jahrbuch des Dubnow-Instituts and Jahrbuch für Politik und Geschichte.

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).

At HKBU, he is pioneering a new Conflict & Peace Studies course: "Sustainable Peace: Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation of Divided Communities" in 2020/21. Previously, he has also taught "Model European Union", "Government and Politics of the United Kingdom", "German Political Systems and Society", "Contemporary Europe and Asia", "The World of Contemporary Europe" and "Political Philosophy: Chinese and European". He has also had active roles in several Model EU simulation exercises in Macau and Tokyo.
