Stan Hok-Wui Wong has written extensively on Hong Kong and Chinese politics. His previous works touch on issues such as electoral politics and state-business relations. In particular, his book, Electoral Politics in Post-1997 Hong Kong: Protest, Patronage, and the Media, provides a parsimonious explanation for the waning electoral performance of the prodemocracy opposition parties, despite the public’s unwavering support for democratization. He is the principal investigator of the Hong Kong Election Study. He is also a member of the research teams conducting the Asian Barometer Survey (ABS) and the World Values Survey (WVS) in Hong Kong. His works have been published in journals such as the British Journal of Political Science, China Quarterly, Electoral Studies, Journal of Peace Research, and Political Behavior.
