FY 2007/2008 Research Topic: 3-01
First Decade of Hong Kong Politics after the Handover


July 1, 2007 will mark the tenth anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong. This study aims to analyze the first decade of Hong Kong politics and HK-Chinese relations. The major focus points are: (a) “Hong Kong Administrated by Hong Kong Business” and the Tung Chee Hwa Administration; (b) elections and democratization (c) economic cooperation and governmental relations between China and Hong Kong (d) the “One Country, Two Systems” framework and the political and legal problems.

Hong Kong has maintained economic prosperity with support from the Mainland and the central government. However, there has been little development in democratization. This study will elucidate the background of the Tung administration and prospects for future development by the Donald Tsang administration.
