CSD Employment Symposium 2018 – Unleashing Rehabilitated Offenders’ Potential

On 29th June 2018, the Hong Kong Correctional Services Department and the Centre for Criminology at the University of Hong Kong hosted its ninth joint event “Unleashing Rehabilitated Offenders’ Potential.


This year’s lunchtime symposium shared the same title as in 2014, “Unleashing Rehabilitated Offenders’ Potential.” The symposium sought to continue providing insights for employers in the business sector in employing rehabilitated offenders in Hong Kong, to understand their critical role in the reintegration process. It called on the public and employers to offer fair job opportunities and treatment to rehabilitated offenders to help them reintegrate into society. More than 180 guests from the CSD, Government officials, business organisations, potential and caring employers, as well as academics from universities have participated the symposium.


It is our greatest honor to have Mr Lam Kwok-leung, Commissioner of Correctional Services, Dr Law Chi-kwong, Secretary for Labour and Welfare and Mr Siu Chor-kee, Chairman of the Committee on Community Support for Rehabilitated Offenders, and Professor Maggy Lee, Acting Director of the Centre for Criminology of HKU. We have invited guest speakers who are also representatives of local businesses and companies, sharing their opinion on the current employment market and their views on employing rehabilitated persons. A few rehabilitated prisoners described the process and training they received as well as their employment experience. Through talks, sharing and discussion among participants of different sectors, we hoped this demonstrated the different dimensions and benefits to both the rehabilitated offender and employers, and ultimately to the community.
