Immigrant Acculturation and Discrimination in Hong Kong Research

2015 June

A survey conducted by Ms. Isabella Ng Fung-sheung of the Department of Asian and Policy Studies (APS) at The Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd) examined the level of acculturation of new immigrants and the problems that they encounter in Hong Kong. The results revealed that over 90% of respondents did not participated in any community activities. It was also found that over 70% of the respondents spoke fluent Cantonese and only 60% used Cantonese to communicate while 26.3% used their own dialects to communicate with family members and friends. The survey further revealed that over 50% of the new immigrants felt discriminated by Hong Kong people at one time or another.
