Perceived discrimination and integration among new arrivals from Mainland China: Implications for higher education development for Hong Kong

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters

Abstract

This chapter examines the relationship and effects of perceived discrimination on the integration among new arrivals from mainland China and its implications to the Hong Kong community. It also explores how perceived discrimination, which may affect the integration process of migrants, would mean to higher education in Hong Kong. By exploring the relationship between perceived discrimination and integration, the chapter argues that discrimination or perceived discrimination significantly influences the immigrant’s prospect of successful immigration, which, in turn, affects the future development of society.
