With the full panoply of the human rights guarantees contained in the ICCPR and a rich tradition of the rule of law, Hong Kong enjoys a wide-ranging debate on human rights. This chapter will consider how PRC policies to carry out these commitments shape the political debate in Hong Kong, addressing: 1) the national and international human rights contexts; 2) the legal narrative on human rights implementation; 3) government repression and political opposition; and 4) some conclusions as to a prudent path forward. In looking at this narrative it is important to appreciate that this is not just about what China can get away with from its position of overwhelming power but is also about what policy approach might best win the trust and confidence of Hong Kong and the international community. In this regard the rule of law tradition in Hong Kong has been of particular importance in maintaining such confidence.
