目錄

A masterpiece of studying the interaction between the Hong Kong Law and gender/sexual politics.

This book attempts to produce multiple perspectives, enlightened by postmodernism, psychoanalysis and postcolonialism, in understanding and cross-examining the power dynamics constituted and territorialized by laws controlling sex work, pornography, artifcial reproduction and emotional relationships, and formulate suggestions for corresponding legal amendments. The book also discusses how the transplantation of theories and related laws can be conducted in order to develop an indigenous notion of justice in Hong Kong.

One primary purpose of studying the connection between the legal machine and gender / sexual politics has been to sensitize (mainstream) society towards injustice and inequality faced by the powerless and the suppressed. Underlying this purpose is the belief that different strategies can be constructed and facilitated under particular cultural and political discourses. This book attempts to produce multiple perspectives, enlightened by postmodernism, psychoanalysis and postcolonialism, in understanding and cross-examining the power dynamics constituted and territorialized by laws controlling sex work, pornography, artificial reproduction and emotional relationships, and formulate suggestions for corresponding legal amendments. The book also discusses how the transplantation of theories and related laws can be conducted in order to develop an indigenous notion of justice in Hong Kong.

Chiu Man-Chung

Chiu Man-Chung was appointed as Head of the Department of Law and Business at Shue Yan University in 2012. He had previously worked in the Law School of City University of Hong Kong, Department of Business and Law of Charles Darwin University (Australia) and School of Law of James Cook University (Australia). He was also elected as a Director of the China Law Society (2013), and appointed as a Member of the Equal Opportunities Commission (2017). He is now the Tony Yen Professor of Law at Beijing Normal University.

‘His (Chiu Man-Chung) analysis explores the strength and rigidity as well as the fragility of social and cultural formations. Never shying away from the messy complexity of the world his work is a fine example of the benefits that will follow for those interested in the place of law in contemporary society if they pursue an active engagement with the multiple dimensions of our world.’
