Aims

In this world of changes, the “One Country, Two Systems” principle is the best safeguard for the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong. As such, it is paramount that we foster a sense of social responsibilities amongst our students by strengthening their understanding on national affairs, constitutional structure, national security and civic duties, nurturing them to be responsible citizens ready to contribute to the society.

By adopting a multi-pronged and coordinated approach, this course seeks to facilitate the students' development of important social responsibility concepts — such as nationhood, “One Country, Two Systems,” rights and duties, responsibilities, national security and self-discipline — in the context of a modern, vibrant and global Hong Kong.

Contents

  • Constitutional framework of mainland China and HKSAR: The Constitution, Basic Law and the “One Country, Two Systems” principle, as well as their relationships;
  • Hong Kong National Security Law (HKNSL) and Safeguarding National Security Ordinance: Their legislative backgrounds, key provisions, implementation rules, subsidiary legislative powers and implementation mechanisms; and
  • Social responsibilities: Citizens' responsibilities to the society (including considering issues from a multicultural perspective), the nation (including the importance of national security and its 16 major fields) and the world (including considering issues from global and comparative perspectives).
