What should be the role of foreign actors in Myanmar's political evolution?
This book analyzes Hong Kong's basic political institutions, mediating institutions and political actors, specific policy areas, and its relationships with the international community and the Mainland China. The politics of the HKSAR have often been turbulent in the decade since the 1997 handover. This book presents a comprehensive and systematic analysis of the main strands of continuity and change during the period. It looks first at the core institutions of the SAR, focusing on the Executive, the Legislature, the Judiciary, the Civil Service, District Councils, Advisory and Statutory bodies. It then turns to supporting structures in the wider society, paying particular attention to Political Parties and Election, Civil Society and NGOs, Mass Media and Public Opinions. Analyses of key policy sectors follow, notably Economic Policy, Social Policy and Urban Policy. To finish, the book examines Hong Kong's relations with the Mainland and the wider world. This book is essential for anyone - student, teacher or researcher - interested in Hong Kong's experience during the first decade of the "one country, two systems" experiment.
