香港子女贍養父母立法研究, King Yung, Anna Tang Nov 2013

香港子女贍養父母立法研究, King Yung, Anna Tang

Theses & Dissertations

1956 年,聯合國發表第一部研究世界人口老齡化的專著《人口老齡化及其社會經濟後果》,向全球發出人類將面臨人口老齡化命運的預警。聯合國老齡化問題世界大會,先後於1982 年和2002 年召開,制定多項行動綱領和目標計劃,呼籲各國遵照和參與。

1981 年,香港步入老齡化社會。根據2006 年中期人口調查報告,當時65歲或以上的老年人口佔香港總人口的12.4%,預計到2033 年,將會高達26.8%。香港一向以「家庭養老」作為主要的安老政策,回歸之後,亦以「老有所養」作為治港方針之一。目前的趨向是政府取代了多種傳統家庭的養老功能,狹窄的稅基是否能承擔得起龐大的福利開支?香港如何完善香港現時退休保障制度?為人子女供養父母的責任仍應否存在?或以立法強制子女供養父母是否可行?如此種種都是值得探討的問題。

本文以社會學紥根理論的研究方法、程序、技術進行研究,並與法社會學相關的基礎理論有機地結合,通過歸納分析逐步產生理論。設計出分為三個階段完善的特設框架:(一)文獻分析及初步歸納認為應有立法方向:在眾多文獻中提煉出主幹性的資料,包括國際社會解決老齡化問題的政策和方針,遠古中國的養老法律制度;探討「孝」具有「齊家治國」的奧妙;概述世界各國供養父母的立法情況;擷取新加坡《贍養父母法案》與中國《老年人權益保障法》進行比較;採用受英國普通法直接影響的新加坡《贍養父母法案》為藍本,以香港特質建構一套初步的法例結構框架;(二)將此框架交於專業人士驗証;(三)此框架經過優化後成為較可行的步驟,進行個案試行及模擬調解。指出對抗制訴訟體制可能激化家庭矛盾,建議在進入訴訟程序之前必須設立「贍養調解前置機制」。

本文冀能收抛磚引玉之效,以喚起政府及早完善長者多支柱生活保障的長遠策略,並就贍養父母議題展開公眾諮詢,引發各界進行討論,醖釀社會的共識,達到尋得真理的預期目標。

Citizenship Education In Post-1997 Hong Kong : Civic Education Or Nationalistic Education?, Kit Man Sep 2013

Citizenship Education In Post-1997 Hong Kong : Civic Education Or Nationalistic Education?, Kit Man

Theses & Dissertations

This study investigates citizenship education policy under the “One Country, Two Systems” model in Hong Kong. A number of studies have analyzed the Hong Kong-China national unification from the political, legal, economic, socio-cultural perspectives. This study approaches Hong Kong-China integration from the hotly contested issue of nationalistic education, attempted to be implemented by the Hong Kong government in the official school curriculum. I use as my data sources official documents issued by government agencies including the Chief Executive’s annual Policy Address, an internal report of the Commission on Strategic Development, and curriculum guides of the Curriculum Development Council to ...


A Study Of The Universities Of The Third Age In Hong Kong : An Evaluation Of Elder Academy Model For The Life Long Learning Of Older People, Ka Fai Wong Sep 2013

A Study Of The Universities Of The Third Age In Hong Kong : An Evaluation Of Elder Academy Model For The Life Long Learning Of Older People, Ka Fai Wong

Theses & Dissertations

Education aims at the development of knowledge and skills for its own sake and pleasure. People aged over 65 years currently comprise 11% of the Hong Kong population. Such aging population in Hong Kong constitutes a challenge to our society. To be adaptive to changes in the environment, especially in aging, more emphasis is placed on “lifelong learning” than on “lifelong education” for self-fulfillment Active aging is evidently supported as a solution to the impact of aging population. Lifelong learning is an important strategy for enhancing active aging. The provision and process of lifelong learning for older people can take ...

現代化背景下的養老 : 家庭將何去何從?, Cheung Ming, Alfred Chan, Ting Cao Jul 2013

現代化背景下的養老 : 家庭將何去何從?, Cheung Ming, Alfred Chan, Ting Cao

Staff Publications

世界上幾乎所有發展中及發達國家和地區都面臨人口老齡化的挑戰,對於有著儒家文化傳統的中國也不例外。據政府統計數據顯示,香港65歲以上人口比例由2012年的13%上升之2039年的28%,屆時每4個人當中將有一位65歲的長者。老年人口的快速增加令到社會資源和服務需要滿足不同的需求及分配,同時也影響到長者與其他社會成員的互動。一方面,社會需要滿足越來越龐大的安老需求,另一方面,家庭養老也面臨著前所未有的挑戰。傳統社會,家庭為長者提供了晚年的棲息之所,孝道的普及使得大部分長者均能「老有所養」。然而,隨著工業化、城市化的發展和家庭規模及結構的變化,家庭的養老護老功能有漸趨式微之勢。在現代化的背景下的香港,孝道是否還有其存在的價值和必要?贍養父母是否仍需要依賴家庭?在變遷的社會下,個人、家庭、政府、的角色又為何?

These students have experiences to serve the needy in forms of social gathering activities, tour guiding & language tutorial…etc, which enhance their confidence and motivation to attempt service learning projects in future.

Based on surveyed figures of the students participated in different service learning projects in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, at the early stage of the projects, it is revealed that these students would easily overlook the dimension ...

Practicing Service Learning In Teacher Education As A Force To Address Social Problems, Leonilla Menezes

Asia-Pacific Regional Conference on Service-Learning 亞太地區服務研習會議

Higher education has a long standing commitment to serving society. From the earlier days the objective of higher education has been for developing professionals who serve society, engaging learned individuals in civic responsibility, and creating leaders to head industry, community organizations, and government. Today we see higher education’s role in serving the public good is becoming defined narrowly as the education of students for the workforce and promote material civilization. Higher education’s current commitment needs to be rethought and refocused to meet the current needs of society. Working with the Community has been a regular practice in Teacher ...

The state Kerala is blessed with scenic beauty and appears evergreen throughout the year as it regularly receives South West and North West monsoons.

The Practice Of Reflection As A Mean To Develop Reflective Intercultural Competence And Its Assessment Through The Rica Model, Lavinia Bracci, Jules M. Bella Owona

Asia-Pacific Regional Conference on Service-Learning 亞太地區服務研習會議

The IC is an independent, non-profit organization with the objective of promoting intercultural exchange around the world through a commitment to service-learning and community engagement. From the general observation of the fast development of intercultural sensitivity of the students participating in our service-learning program, in 2004 the IC faculty designed an instructional approach called Full-immersion: Culture, Content, Service (FICCS) (Bracci & Filippone 2009). In 2008 the IC faculty designed the Reflective Intercultural Assessment Model (RICA) (Biagi et al. 2012) to measure the unique competence resulting from the use of the FICCS approach: Reflective Intercultural Competence, or RIC (idem).

RIC is a competence gained through a structured and guided reflection process; it implies a conscious elaboration of intercultural encounters thus allowing a full engagement of the student.

Reflection is a step that is necessary in developing an intercultural sensitivity and the reflective writing course provides the means for students to understand ...
