Course Aims

This course attempts to investigate the important aspects of government, politics and public administration in Hong Kong in the context of the changing environment both on the mainland and in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. We explore the interaction among the institutions, agencies and actors involved in the operation of government and relate them to the basic knowledge of public administration and politics. Students are expected to identify critical political issues that may contribute to the effective operation of the government, and discern patterns of political development. The course requires students to apply basic political theories and concepts to the current issues in Hong Kong politics and come up with solutions to problems and crisis in governance.
