The Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation Bill (known thereafter as the extradition bill), proposed by the Hong Kong government in February2019, has triggered a series of mass assemblies and demonstrations across the semi-autonomous territory since March. The scale and intensity of such collective actions have surpassed any of the city’s previous protests.

In view of this, a team of university researchers, led by Professor Francis L. F. Lee (School of Journalism and Communication, The Chinese University of Hong Kong), Dr. Samson Yuen (Department of Political Science, Lingnan University), Dr. Gary Tang (Department of Social Science, The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong) and Dr. Edmund W. Cheng (Department of Government and International Studies, Hong Kong Baptist University), has conducted a series of onsite surveys since the “Safeguard Hong Kong anti-extradition bill march” organized by the Civil Human Rights Front on June 9.
