EOF 2015 - Talk on “Racial Discrimination Law in Hong Kong and How to Achieve Racial Harmony”

Talk on “Racial Discrimination Law in Hong Kong and How to Achieve Racial Harmony’’

Hong Kong is an international metropolitan with a long history of cross-cultural interaction. Embracing cultural diversity will not only strengthen our competitiveness but also make our city a more vibrant, energetic and desirable place to live. Yet, although ethnic minorities compose about 6% of our population, some ethnic groups still face discriminations that restrict their full development of potentials or simply give them a hard time in their daily lives.

The Equal Opportunity Commission aims to eliminate discriminatory behaviours by implementing anti-discrimination legislation including the Race Discrimination Ordinance enacted in 2008. In this talk, legal protection against racial discrimination would be elaborated such that the participants can identify the basic principles of direct and indirect discrimination, harassment and vilification on the ground of race. Beyond that, participants would also be facilitated to revisit their stereotyping of people from different races and cultures. The ultimate goal is to promote the cultural sensitivity of the participants such that they are able to treat everyone as unique individual but at the same time react to his/her racial, cultural and religious background in a respectful way.

Therefore, in order to raise the awareness of the Race Discrimination Ordinance at the University, a talk titled “Racial Discrimination Law in Hong Kong and How to Achieve Racial Harmony” will be organized by the Equal Opportunity Unit on 11 November 2015. You are cordially invited to attend the talk.
