"One country, two systems" in crisis : Hong Kong's transformation since the handover

    Research output: Scholarly Books | Reports | Literary WorksBook (Editor)Education

    Abstract

    In the tumultuous negotiations of the Sino-British Joint Declaration of 1984, the United Kingdom willingly signed over Hong Kong’s reins to the People’s Republic of China (PRC) - but did so with the presupposition that the PRC would faithfully implement the principle of "one country, two systems" for the following fifty years. Yet since the handover in 1997, the PRC has failed to allow Hong Kong a higher degree of autonomy. "One Country, Two Systems" in Crisis elucidates how Chinas intervention has curtailed Hong Kong's civil liberties; how freedom of speech is at the mercy of the government; and how deception has turned the "Pearl of the Orient" into the rubber stamp of the Chinese Communist Party.
