Building Democracy offers an analysis of Hong Kong's current political situation within the larger context of its political history and its relationship to Beijing. The 12 chapters explore all the topics that are essential to building a healthy and vigorous democracy, such as: the role of political parties, democratic reform and business, accountability and open government, the media, the basic law, legislative-executive relations, the role of the civil service; development of constitutional conventions; and women in politics. Specific subjects covered include the Principal Officials Accountability System (POAS), Article 23 legislation and the Government response to the 2003 outbreak of Severe Atypical Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). A postscript discusses the July 1st March and the meetings outside the Legislative Council.
