Hong Kong Democratic Foundation (HKDF) was established in 1989 and is an independent, multi-racial, multi-cultural political think tank made up of local people committed to shaping government policy in order to make Hong Kong a more open, progressive society in which all people can share the fruits of its success. To this end, HKDF focuses on the development and promotion of policies.

Our primary activity is to seek to influence Hong Kong's economic, political and social development in accordance with the above. This we aim to accomplish through the production of position papers on relevant topics: developed within the framework of our policies and principles. Our papers are forwarded to appropriate Government Departments, often in response to their consultative documents; circulated to legislators and shared with political parties and other interested organisations. We also lobby actively for the furtherance of our ideals.

We hold monthly luncheons addressed by distinguished guest speakers on topics of interest to our members and useful for our policy development. Additionally, we convene meetings with experts, legislators and organisations for the exchange of ideas and the promotion of our own proposals.

HKDF is governed by a General Committee, but our principal organ of policy development is our Policy Committee, which meets once a month to discuss ideas, commission and review position papers.

Membership is open to anyone.

 

香港民主促進會

香港民主促進會(簡稱HKDF)於1989年成立,是一個由一群本地人士組成的獨立、多種族、多元文化的政治智囊團,致力發展和改善政府政策,使香港成為一個更開放和進步的社會,使所有人能分享香港發展的成果。因此,香港民主促進會的重點在研究和推動政策。

我們的主要活動是探索影響香港的經濟、政治和社會的問題;跟據我們的政策和原則,發表有關問題的政策論文。我們會將我們的政策論文交到適當的政府部門,回應他們的諮詢文件;並且轉達至立法會議員、政黨和其他感興趣的組織。我們亦同時積極遊說有關方面,以達成我們的理想。

在每月的午餐例會我們會就政策議題,邀請著名的嘉賓發表演說,同時,我們會晤專家、立法會議員和有關機構交流意見和發表我們的建議。

香港民主促進會由常務委員會監察,而政策委員會則負責研究。政策委員會每月均舉行一次會議討論計策、檢討政策定位。

會員資格公開予任何人士。
