Supported by the Knowledge Exchange Fund, the Annual Report on the Civil Society in Hong Kong 2009 was released by the Department of Politics and Public Administration and the Centre for Civil Society and Governance, The University of Hong Kong. Focusing on the social service sector, this is the very first published report of an unprecedented multiyear project to map the state of development of the civil society in Hong Kong through the collection and analysis of basic data.
Other sectors including environment and heritage protection, arts and culture, education, health care, civic and advocacy organizations, and foundations will be studied in the coming years. The multiyear project aims to provide useful knowledge to policymakers, researchers, and activists on our civil society – an actor that is growing in its importance and influence in recent years.
