11.10.2016

Organized by the Public Opinion Programme of the University of Hong Kong and co-organized by Project Citizens Foundation, the seminar "Directors in Dialogue – Polling and Elections in the United States and Hong Kong" and the workshop on Polling and Elections have been successfully held on consecutively two days on 11 and 12 October 2016. Prof. John Della Volpe from the Institute of Politics from Harvard University vividly described the political attitude of the millennial generation and the Trump phenomenon currently in the United States. On the other hand, Dr. Robert Chung brought out the unattended interactive relationship between polls and political choice in reality that significantly affected the result of the recent LegCo election in Hong Kong. Out of the interesting topics, the way how Prof. John Della Volpe convey opinion polls using social media tools was particularly intriguing and it could potentially change the entire electoral campaigning strategy in future.
