First Ever Online Racial Discrimination Study in Hong Kong

Funded by the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC), Dr WANG Yuan of CityU’s Department of Media and Communication led a research project titled “A Study of Online Media Representation of Ethnic Minorities and Online Racial Discrimination in Hong Kong.” It analysed how online news articles and their reader comments portray ethnic minority groups in Hong Kong during the COVID-19 pandemic and whether this portrayal involves racial bias, stereotypes, or discrimination.
