National identity and intercultural outlook: A critical review of Hong Kong's civic education since the 1980's

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper argues that in the new landscape of a postmodernist world, civic education would need to nurture national identity and promote intercultural outlook hand in hand. This article reviews development of Hong Kong’s civic education development in this light. In the case of post-colonial Hong Kong, a sensible balance is most needed as the city is to continue as an international city that functions as one of China’s windows to the world.
