Since 1997, NDI has worked with Hong Kong academic institutions, political parties, and civil society groups from across the political spectrum to advance nonpartisan research, education, and dialogue supporting inclusive and responsive governance.
The Institute has provided forums for women, youth, and ethnic minorities to constructively participate in policy-making and elevate their voices and priorities. Additionally, NDI has conducted a series of missions to examine the development of Hong Kong’s constitutional and electoral framework, the enforcement of the rule of law and civil liberties, and prospects for Hong Kong’s democratic development. The Institute has published a series of reports based on these assessments, entitled The Promise of Democratization in Hong Kong, the latest of which was released in April 2020.
