Background

The Constitution of the People’s Republic of China (Constitution) and the Basic Law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (Basic Law) form the constitutional basis of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). The Basic Law is a constitutional document for the HKSAR. It enshrines within a legal document the important concepts of "one country, two systems", "Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong" and a high degree of autonomy. It also prescribes the various systems to be practised in the HKSAR. The Basic Law is related closely to our daily lives.

The Education Bureau (EDB) and schools have always attached great importance to the promotion of Basic Law education as their regular, on-going task. The EDB will continue to adopt diversified strategies and ways to enrich students' learning experiences (including Mainland exchange programmes, service learning), which can be organically integrated with the curriculum, in order to facilitate students' understanding of the Basic Law and its application in daily life. The EDB also encourages schools to organise interesting and meaningful learning activities to help students understand the relationship between the Constitution and the Basic Law from different perspectives (including economic, historical, political and legal), as well as the implementation of the Basic Law.

 
Objective(s) The seminar aims to introduce a brief history of the Constitution and to facilitate participants’ understanding of the state system, the fundamental rights and duties of citizens, the political system and the legal system as prescribed in the Constitution.
