Project Description

In 2007 Democracy International participated in an assessment on the Chief Executive Election and prospects for democratization and constitutional reform in Hong Kong. The report assessed the election process and legislative, district council, and chief executive elections in 2007; the political environment before and after reversion to Chinese sovereignty; the status of autonomy, rule of law, and civil liberties under Chinese sovereignty; reforms of governing institutions introduced in 2002; the impact of pro-democracy demonstrations in 2003; and the state of the transition and prospects for democratization.
