Centre for Youth Studies
Established in 2016, the Centre for Youth Studies aims to coordinate and synthesize research efforts in different approaches to youth studies, such as youth political participation, youth media consumption, youth identity, youth health, and youth culture. The objectives of the Centre are to promote interdisciplinary and collaborative youth studies at The Chinese University of Hong Kong and to develop youth studies research as a strategic focus in the social science disciplines; setting up a platform for external collaboration with overseas academic institutions on comparative youth studies; and generating impactful policy implications for youth in Hong Kong and the region.

Youth Political Participation and Social Media Use
To examine the roles of youth’s social media use in their offline and online political participation, this project conducted a mobile phone survey among Hong Kong permanent residents aged 15-29 (N=829). It aimed to generate impactful policy implications for youth and to enhance the political participation of youth as the positive force of transformative social change.
Health Behaviour in School-aged Children in Hong Kong
This linked project with Utrecht University will adopt the standardized protocol of a World Health Organisation collaborative cross-national survey (Health Behaviour in School-aged Children, HBSC) and conduct a school-based survey through self-completion questionnaires administered in the classrooms. The specific population selected for sampling is young people attending school aged 11, 13, and 15. The recommended sample size for each of the three age groups is set at approximately 1,500 students, totalling 4,500 students for each cycle.
