Abstract

This paper is a review of academic literature on research in civic education of Hong Kong covering period 1980s to 2000s. It reports only peer-reviewed journal articles, research-based books, and chapters in edited refereed volumes by academics who were engaged full-time when the word was published. It covers 73 refereed journal articles, 2 authored books and 31 chapters in edited refereed books: a total of 106 publications. The following areas of concern were included: (1) concepts of citizenship; (2) concepts and policies of civic education; (3) curriculum, textbooks and implementation of civic education; (4) themes of civic education, including political education, national education, global education, and human rights education; and (5) the influence of Asian values. Given its limitation, this review has revealed some under-developed and under-researched areas and themes which deserve attention and research and has suggested some concrete agenda for research in the future.
