An empirically driven consolidated framework is needed to help navigate the development of social inclusion of South Asian and Southeast Asian ethnic minorities in Hong Kong. A qualitative pilot study with 11 individuals, who were social service providers and religious and ethnic community leaders from diverse ethnic backgrounds, was conducted to collect their perceptions of how existing policies affect the social integration of ethnic minorities and propose policy implications in Hong Kong. Thematic analysis was conducted suggesting two broad themes: 1) integration of social harmony and social justice, and 2) articulation of participation in political process and policymaking.
