- This paper investigates the contributing factors leading to the rise in level of protest in Hong Kong between the years of 1997 and 2017. I posited that the independent variables grievances, efficacy, and identity contributed to this increase. Data gathered from opinion polls suggest that grievances and identity are correlated with the increase in protest. Data gathered from South China Morning Post indicate no significant trend in efficacy but analysis of recent major protests in Hong Kong suggest a possibility of an increase. Qualitative analysis of all the data in relation to the variables suggests that grievances and identity did contribute to the rise in protest, and that the link between efficacy and the protests is inconclusive.
