Abstract:

The South Asian communities have since the mid-19th century contributed to the development of a multicultural environment in Hong Kong, but as ethnic minorities they have been socially marginalized and often discriminated against. Using a two-tier model I conducted knowledge transfer projects on the Indian, Nepali, and Pakistani migrant cultures, as part of a bigger initiative to facilitate a comprehensive understanding of South Asian cultures and in promoting positive ethnic relations in Hong Kong. In the process I experimented with the development of intercultural education pedagogy in schools, community programs, and various partner organizations. In this talk I share my research-in-action experience
