Abstract [en]

The first July 1997 Hong Kong ceased to be a colony of the United Kingdom and became a part of the People´s Republic of China as Hong Kong SAR (Special Administrative Region). The purpose of this essay is to compare the degree of democratic rights that was implemented during both British and Chinese Administration of the region. Taking Robert Dahl´s theory of democracy as a starting point for my essay I explore the two different countries approach towards the political structure of Hong Kong. Starting with the introduction of the democratic process in Hong Kong implemented 1952, I follow its development until today. The genuine democratic reform took its place after the signing of the Joint Declaration in 1984. This development continued and accelerated when the last Governor of Hong Kong, Chris Patten, assumed his office in 1992. After the transition of Hong Kong to Hong Kong SAR in July 1997, the Chinese government decided to dissolve the indirect and direct elected Legislative Council of Hong Kong SAR lacked all signs of democratic mandate, China resumed the democratization of Hong Kong. I conclude my essay by stating that Hong Kong enjoys a higher degree of democracy as Hong Kong SAR than it ever did as a British Colony.
