Making a happier Hong Kong

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook Chapter

Abstract

Achieving greater happiness in a big city like Hong Kong is a challenge. The fact that it is one of the world’s safest and most peaceful cities, in spite of its population of more than seven million–who are densely packed into tight living spaces while also feeling the effects of the herculean forces of globalisation, swept by the cross currents of different cultures–is already a miracle in itself. Conflicts, contradictions, contentions and confusion are all to be expected. Yet Hong Kong’s happiness index has held up very well.
