This article attempts to locate Hong Kong’s ethnic minorities at the intersection of discourses between ethnic diversity, immigration, citizenship and identity. The literature informs categorizing and matching Hong Kong’s ethnic minorities, ascribing different characteristics attached to each category. This helps conceptualize the positionality of ethnic minorities in Asia’s ‘world city’, Hong Kong. The article is informed by in-depth interviews with twenty ethnic minority young people who provided perspectives on their constructions and negotiation of identity.
