The Hong Kong Political Science Association is a non-profit organization. Its objectives are to promote the development and dissemination of political science and closely related disciplines (hereafter referred to simply as political science).

Politics is, as Bismarck said, the art of the possible and it is also an increasingly globally popular academic discipline that cuts across many other disciplines.The Hong Kong Political Science Association aims at promoting the study of politics in the special administrative region of Hong Kong and stimulating more people to explore political change in a relatively objective and comprehensive way. Its annual conference has become a significant event that has attracted the participation of many young researchers, experienced academics, foreign diplomats and students. We hope that, by participating in the Association’s annual conference and other activities, you will find the study of politics practically interesting, theoretically challenging, empirically demanding and academically significant.
