Abstract

This study aims at evaluating the contribution of Advocacy non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to ‘good governance’ through citizenship education in shaping a participatory culture in the Hong Kong context. The survey found out that NGOs are important stakeholders in the administration and policy formulation of the HKSAR. Apart from these, the HKSAR Government finally backed down the plan to force school children to take national education classes in 2012 due to NGOs’ initiatives and protests has vividly demonstrated that NGOs could also help to safeguard children’s rights and voice in Hong Kong.
