The Basic Law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of The People’s Republic of China is a constitutional document laying out the principles, policies and structures of the “One Country Two Systems”. Since 1997, its implementation has faced many challenges and aroused much concern on issues around the high degree of autonomy, the political structure, the independent judiciary and Rule of Law, the interpretation of the Basic Law, and so forth. 

This series of English-speaking online seminars for tertiary students and staff would give a concise and useful introduction of the Basic Law and discuss some of the major queries about its implementation. In each seminar, there will be an introduction for one hour and a Q&A session for half-an-hour.
