In line with the university’s global objective of developing itself into an outstanding and internationally-recognized institution of higher learning and against the backdrops of the one country, the Centre for Constitutional Law and Basic Law Studies (CCBLS)would strive to become a research platform that will be impactful in the MSAR and live up to what the community would expect of the university. It would be devoted to the study of the Constitution, the Basic Law and the one country, two systems theory; academic exchange; talent nurturing; the fostering of (what is known in Chinese terms) the ‘Love China, Love Macao’ spirit and provision of consultation to the MSAR government on its policy formulations.
