Moving Image: Hong Kongers return home : identity, cultural frames and behavioral consequences

TitleHong Kongers return home : identity, cultural frames and behavioral consequences
Editors
Issue Date2004
PublisherHong Kong : Dept. of Psychology, the University of Hong Kong
AbstractBetween 1984 and 1997, as a response to "handover anxiety", more than 600,000 Hong Kongers emigrated to dozens of countries, chief among them Canada and Australia. This immigration consisted primarily of educated professionals and business owners who, in contrast to historic emigration patterns, departed as family units. As the number of immigrants began to decline in the mid-90's, an unexpected trend developed: Hong Kongers returning home. It is estimated that 30% of the pre-handover emigrants have returned to live and work in Hong Kong. How have these repatriates construed their cultural identity and what are the behavioral consequences of identity construction? Dr. Sussman discusses an ongoing investigation of repatriation viewed through the lens of her Cultural Identity Model of Cultural Transitions
