In recent years, Hong Kong has witnessed obvious changes, especially among the younger generations, in terms of people’s post-materialist values, their attachment to China, and their trust in the government. There is a trend towards polarization as well as a widening value gap between generations. Recent events have shown that this widening gap has added to Hong Kong’s governance problems, which are becoming increasingly difficult to resolve.
