Hong Kong: Submission to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights: 73rd Session, 13 February – 3 March 2023

This submission sets out some of Amnesty International’s key concerns and recommendations related to the implementation of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights by the government of Hong Kong SAR. It highlights a crackdown on the city’s largest trade unions, severe encroachment of academic freedom in both schools and universities and widespread censorship of public libraries, films and school teaching materials since the enactment of the National Security Law in June 2020. It also highlights the long-standing problem of discrimination against minorities and marginalized groups including LGBTI people, non-refoulement protection claimants and migrant domestic workers.
