New BIICL Research Report on democratic participation in Hong Kong

BIICL is undertaking research on legal issues relating to democratic participation in Hong Kong, focussing on the issues which are the subject of current protests there.

The initial scoping report is published here

The report covers the international law obligations of China and of the UK; the status of the Joint Declaration and Basic Law guarantees in Hong Kong law; and any relevant obligations of the UK Government under UK law. It also identities possible legal remedies for breach of any legal obligation under international or domestic law, and possible forums and avenues for seeking redress, for individuals or legal entities with an interest in Hong Kong.

The scoping report has been conducted by Jill Barrett and Professor Robert McCorquodale
