Contemporary Hong Kong Politics analyzes Hong Kong's core political institutions, mediating institutions and actors, key policy areas, and relationships with Mainland China and the international community.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, legislature, judiciary, civil service, District Councils, and advisory and statutory bodies. It then turns to supporting structures in the wider society, paying particular attention to political parties and elections, civil society and NGOs, and mass media and public opinion. 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.
