Born under China’s reign: Young generation of ethnic Muslims and the future of Hong Kong SAR

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

While dominant scholarly and policy attention has been focusing on the Post-90s generation’s involvement in Umbrella Movement and their disillusions towards the future of Hong Kong, relatively few attention has been paid to the experience of young ethnic generation in Hong Kong. Born after the British colonial rule in the post-1997 era, this paper inquires how young Pakistani Muslim students preceive their identity, education arrangement and aspirations of future living in Hong Kong SAR. Differ from their parents having strong attachment to South Asia, this paper, based on interviewing records an other reports, argues that young ethnic Pakistani Muslims take strong root and integrate in Hong Kong, they will become an undivided part as well as the driving force of the Hong Kong SAR future.
