Abstract

This chapter discusses two unrelated topics which are successively provided for in the Basic Law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). These are the right of Hong Kong residents to a freedom of choice of occupations (art.33 of the Basic Law) and the right to academic freedom of Hong Kong’s academic institutions and by implication of their academics (art.34 of the Basic Law). The first section of this chapter will focus on art.33, while the second section will focus on art.34.
