ABOUT THE CENTRE

CCPL was established in 1995 as a non-profit virtual research centre in the Faculty of Law.  Its goals are to (1) advance knowledge on public law and human rights issues primarily from the perspectives of international and comparative law and practice; (2) encourage and facilitate collaborative work within the Faculty of Law, the University of Hong Kong, and the broader community in the fields of comparative and public law; and (3) make the law more accessible to the community and more effective as an agent of social change.

The Centre’s projects and events generally come within one of the following themes: Comparative Public Policy; Comparative Human Rights; Constitutional Societies; and International Law in the Domestic Order.
