Chapter 19 Civil Rights
Amidst a wave of globalization and internationalization, Taipei City is not just the capital of Taiwan and its political and economic center, but a world-famous city. Economic development is continuing to facilitate engineering, public facilities, education, culture, medicine, hygiene and social welfare. As the progress of society has nurtured the flourishing of industry and commerce, citizens’ rights consciousness has also grown, leading people to demand the government to protect their rights in daily life, including the right to convenient transport. In accordance with the R.O.C. Constitution, laws and self-government regulations, Taipei City Government formulates (sets, revises) various selfgovernment ordinances and city laws and regulations to protect citizens’ rights and serve as the standards for citizens’ rights protection and the basis for control; it also implements the ideas of rule of law and human rights protection in accordance with the spirit of the standards of basic rights stipulated in the Constitution.
