The Problem of Chinese - Hong Kong Relations in the Media and Official Discourse
2019
The research is done in order to analyze how Hong Kong represented the Mainland China and Hong Kong relations with the Mainland in its media and official political discourses during the Hong Kong protests in the period from 28 September to 15 December 2014. The research is done on the basis of the quantitative and qualitative content analysis of texts of political speeches of Hong Kong's officials and two Hong Kong leading newspapers’ media coverage. It was found out that The Hong Kong official political discourse adheres to positive and neutral representations of China and China-Hong Kong relations, particularly focusing on outlining mutual economic, financial and trade benefits for both territories. At the same time, media discourse analyzed on the base of news publications in Apple Daily and South China Morning Post in the considered period differed in their tone of representation of the Mainland China-Hong Kong relations and in salience of themes. While Apple Daily perceives China and its relations with Hong Kong from a strongly negative position, South China Morning Post adheres to quite neutral tone on this matter.
