Hong Kong Key Research Project Legislative Council Election 

Young people have become increasingly active in social movements for democracy in recent years, such as in the Occupy Movement of 2014. These young people formed new political parties and participated in the 2016 Legislative Council Election, held on 4 September 2016. This is the sixth Legislative Council Election in Hong Kong.

In consideration of the specific political context within which the election was held, four territory-wide telephone opinion surveys on political orientations and voting behaviour were conducted before and after the election.

Six newspaper articles were published, and it is expected that a book examining voting behaviour and social and political changes in greater detail will be published.
