Fundamental Rights and the Basic Laws of Hong Kong and Macau Special Administrative Regions
  • Duarte Santos
Conference paper

In the papers presented by the speakers, the issue of the fundamental rights was subjected to two different approaches. On the one hand, we had a general overview on the human rights in Asia, and on the other hand, a specific focus was given to the fundamental rights in the Special Administrative Regions of Macau and Hong Kong.

Professor Jean Pierre Cabestan raised, as a key issue, the influence of constitutionalism and western legal traditions on human rights over Asian legal systems. In what measure are the latter “westernized”? Are there correspondences or even convergences? Is there a unique pattern of human rights?
