Stateless nation within a nationless state: The political past, present, and future of Hongkongers, 1949-2019

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlespeer-review

Abstract

Hongkonger identity has been a popular research topic for social scientists worldwide. Drawing upon contemporary theories of stateless nation, this article goes beyond the existing “local vis‐à‐vis national identity” paradigm and re‐articulates the political past, present, and future of the Hongkongers as a stateless nation. The article argues that political future of Hong Kong should be re‐thought within the framework of China's political trajectory as a nationless state. Copyright © 2019 The author(s).
