Re-shaping education for citizenship: democratic national citizenship in Hong Kong
This book explores school processes in Hong Kong under the new conditions of globalization. The focus is on investigating how the concept of a national identity of the "one country two systems" policy is developing, and is thus a study of that diversity which all education systems now have to address. The policy aims at facilitating national re-integration and consolidation in the face of an insistence on local citizens' universal civic rights and the values of liberty, equality, democracy and autonomy. The book is both a case study of Hong Kong and an analysis of change in the relationship of education, citizenship and national identity in the contemporary world.
