What’s Love Got to do with Ethnic Tensions in Hong Kong?

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In his annual policy address of 2015, Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying launched a severe attack on some university students’ calls for Hong Kong nationalism and self-determination. He harshly slammed the students for “advocating independence” in the University of Hong Kong Students’ Union magazine Xueyuan (學苑 Undergrad) and condemned an anthology published by Xueyuan in September 2014 entitled Xianggang minzulun (香港民族論 On Hong Kong Nationality).
