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.

近十年,香港不同民意調查都顯示香港的年輕一代的政治價值出現變化,包括對中國的抗拒、對政府愈不信心,以及傾向後物質的價值。政治價值兩極分化,以及世代之間的價值差距,加深了政府的管治困難。從最近香港的一些事例,可見政府與年青人的價值差距非常大,政府要贏取人心遙遙無期。
