Strategies of Sustainable Livelihood against Racism and Social Exclusion: South & Southeast Asian Ethnic Minorities and Chinese New Immigrants in Post-colonial Hong Kong

The main objective of our proposed study is to examine the extent of social exclusion and discrimination of Hong Kong ethnic minorities and Chinese new immigrants. Through employing the Sustainable Livelihoods approach which was developed by the Department for International Development (DFID) of UK, we will explore the ways that Hong Kong ethnic minorities and Chinese new immigrants deal with their everyday life difficulties. Furthermore, by employing the theoretical perspectives of colonialism and sinicization, our study also attempts to examine and explain the socio-political mechanisms that lead to South & Southeast Asian ethnic minorities and Chinese new immigrants in Hong Kong being socially excluded and discriminated. Policies and measures are expected to be developed from these analyses in order to enhance the city’s multicultural citizenship for the well being of different ehthnicites.
