Repositioning the Hong Kong Government

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter examines the idea of citizenship in Hong Kong with reference to Peter Marshall's analysis of three forms of citizenship (civil rights, political rights, and welfare rights) in the western capitalist tradition: its growth in Hong Kong has been stunted and distorted under colonial rule, and there continues to be a gap between what different groups in society expect of citizenship and what the government wishes it to be. The case study of the West Kowloon Cultural District proposal is discussed as an illustration of this problem.

Keywords:   Hong Kong, Citizenship, Peter Marshall, Civil rights, Political rights, Welfare rights, Capitalism, Colonial rule, West Kowloon Cultural District
