Hong Kong students’ attitudes to protest

Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers


Successive international research shows that young Hong Kong students show little interest in political engagement, more interest in social engagement and a rejection of illegal protest. Yet ten year later the same students engage in illegal activities in order to advance the cause of democracy. This paper will draw on quantitative and qualitative data to try and explain these changing political behaviors.
