dc.description.abstract Abstract: As a dependency of the United Kingdom, Hong Kong is ineligible to ratify international agreements such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The United Kingdom ratified the ICCPR and in so doing extended it to Hong Kong, with certain reservations. Full implementation of the ICCPR in Hong Kong. requires that it be incorporated into domestic law, however. That was accomplished in 1991 with the passage'of the Hong Kong Bill of Rights. This Article discusses the incorporation of the ICCPR into Hong Kong law via the Hong Kong Bill of Rights and the Basic Law, and proposes an interpretation of these three documents which will yield a possible legal foundation for the continued application after 1997 of the human rights protections of the ICCPR in Hong Kong. en_US
