Description: This report looks at the state of Hong Kong politics after the 2012 elections. It covers three key reasons why Congress may consider appropriating funds to foster the development of civil society and democratic practices in Hong Kong:  it is U.S. policy to support democracy in Hong Kong,  the conduct of the 2012 elections may be indicators of support for democratic reforms, and  there is a possibility that democracy in Hong Kong could lead to democratic reforms in Mainland China.
