    Project Details


    This study, adopting the Foucauldian lenses of governmentality and ethical self-formation, aims to: 1) investigate how university students understand prevailing political discourses in Hong Kong’s social-political context; 2) explore how the social unrest influences students’ self-positioning, peer interaction and relationships; 3) investigate the development of citizenship and (re)construction of identity among university students within Hong Kong’ socio-political, cultural and economic discourses; 4) identify the difficulties and challenges students face in their interactions with peers holding different political and ideological views and their coping strategies; and, 5) provide theoretical resources and suggest effective university-level measures and individual-level strategies to facilitate students’ whole-person development.
