Hong Kong Students' Attitudes to Citizenship: Monitoring Progress Ten Years after Hong Kong's Return to China

Project: Research project

Project Details


The purpose of this project is to provide a framework for ongoing measurement of young people’s attitude to citizenship and national identity. Baseline measures based on 1999/2000 survey data of Hong Kong students’ citizenship values (Torney-Purta et al., 2001; Amadeo et al., 2003) will be developed. A new survey made up of these original questions but also including new questions focusing on national identity will be administered in 2009 to provide the second measurement point for comparison against the baselines. The new survey can then be used at regular intervals to chart ongoing development of students’ attitudes to citizenship and national identity.
