Abstract: A Comparative Study of the Political Culture of Postcolonial Hong Kong and Macau Abstract Hong Kong and Macau are two different cities. They experienced quite a long history of colonization and are under the sovereignty of present day China. Because of their different ways of colonized life, they acquired different political systems and developed the political culture differently even though they are nearby cities with interrelated destiny. Not until the decade prior to the hand-over of sovereignty, both British and Portuguese colonizers set constraints to political development of the cities. Since China had decided to resume sovereignty over these two cities, de-colonization and modernization of politics started. People have been enjoying the progressively higher level of political participation since then. Both Hong Kong and Macau have developed their own types of political culture, which is constituted by the affective factors such as legitimacy of the colonial and S. A. R. governments, people's attitude towards legislatures, electoral system development as well as political participation, development of party politics, and some internalized factors like de-politicization, and the tension of dual identity. Both of them have gradually developed their own models of liberal-democracy - the politics of consensus and the politics of the way to live respectively. Above all, Hong Kong's experience presents herself probably a civil society in future for the participant culture in contrast to Macau who may take more time to become as a civil society due to its subjective and conservative political culture even though she does not have much controversial discourse. This paper is going to see how the two cities will be reconstructed in the postcolonial era with the colonial frame, Mainland fixtures, and then their own styles. DOI: 10.5353/th_b3194114
