An analysis of agenda setting : the case of development of West Kowloon Cultural District

by Leung, Chung-tin

Abstract (Summary)
(Uncorrected OCR) Abstract The proposed West Kowloon Cultural District has become a hot topic of debate in Hong Kong. By applying John Kingdon's theory of agenda setting, this dissertation traces the path of development of the subject from 1996 to the present. It shows that a complete coupling of the problem, policy and political streams has not occurred. The controversy surrounding the single-package approach proposed by the Government has led to a political stalemate. Only the emergence of a new opportunity may break the deadlock and bring about policy change.
