Chapter ten Governance and Corruption Prevention in Hong Kong

  • Ian Scott
Part of the Urban and Regional Research International book series (URI)


Good urban governance is often taken to include the core values of the democratic right of political participation at the local level; the decentralized and efficient delivery of appropriate services; and the expectation that those who are responsible for providing such services should not act corruptly. It is assumed that these values can be arranged and find institutional expression in a harmonious process which results in a better quality of life for all citizens. In the Hong Kong experience, however, it cannot be said that harmony and balance between the values has ever been achieved.
