The Basic Law is the constitutional document for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

It enshrines within a legal document the important concepts of "One Country, Two Systems", "a high degree of autonomy" and "Hong Kong People running Hong Kong". The Basic Law came into effect on July 1, 1997 when Hong Kong's sovereignty was returned to China.
