2) To understand the identity formation of teenage immigrants in Hong Kong: How do they perceive their belonging? In what way do they consider themselves (not) a member of Hong Kong society? In what way are they perceived by others to be (not) a member of Hong Kong society? What are the forces shaping their identities? 3) To arrive at an analysis of Hong Kong’s educational policies towards immigrant students and to inform more supportive policies and practices. 4) To come to an exploration of the politics of belonging in Hong Kong and to inform what it means to be a Hong Kong person. 5) More broadly, to examine how this Hong Kong experience can inform other places.
