This chapter investigates how the general public in Hong Kong think and feel about confrontation, social conflicts and the Mongkok Riot (MKR). It is based on public surveys. These cover a range of issues concerning the conduct, impact and fallout of the MKR, including views on social conflicts, police violence and participants’ use of force, for example. The chapter is organized into four parts. Sections I to III report on three surveys (listed below); Section IV draws conclusions about what we have learned. The surveys are:
  1. (1)

    “MK Police and Citizen Confrontation Survey” (旺角警民衝突) (February 11–14, 2016). Commissioned by Third Side (新思維).

  2. (2)

    “Survey of Views on Social Conflict in Hong Kong” (April 6, 2016) by CUHK.

  3. (3)

    “MK Incident Opinion Survey Report” (旺角事件意見調查報)Commissioned by Future@Hong Kong (未來@香港).
