Our Study

We are conducting a mixed-methods, longitudinal study to examine the antecedents of collective action in the context of Hong Kong. In particular, we are interested in the dynamic relationship between politicized identification and participation in normative and non-normative (radical) collective action. So far we have collected the first wave of data from the HKU student population, and we will collect subsequent waves in 2017-2018.
