HONG KONG HUMAN RIGHTS ACTION PLAN

CCPL’s Hong Kong Human Rights Action Plan consisted of all of the current recommendations to Hong Kong from UN human rights bodies. There are 145 recommendations dating back to 2005. While some of these recommendations have already been addressed, many still require attention and effective measures that come from better policy-making and new thinking. The Action Plan highlights those human rights areas where Hong Kong is weak. If you are a Chinese male adult resident, you are unlikely to suffer much by way of human rights violations. The Action Plan shows that it is the most vulnerable members of our society who are in need of protection. These include women, children, non-residents, ethnic minorities, asylum seekers, and human trafficking victims. It is here that Hong Kong falls below international standards.
