On Hong Kong Identity

This paper discusses the evolution of a Hong Kong identity. It focuses mainly on the emergence of a discernible Hong Kong consciousness during the Sixties and the 1967 Riots in particular, and a distinct Hong Kong identity during the recurring protest movements following the handover of Hong Kong in 1997. By 2019, a Hong Kongese identity had developed that is defined by its opposition to Chinese domination of Hong Kong.
