This Special Issue examines various issues concerning the outmigration waves of Hong Kong after 2019, the year when Hong Kong witnessed a series of social protests. In this introduction, we consider Hong Kong as a city of flows: not only because the city continues to receive immigrants and remigrants and produce emigrants, but also because of people’s common practice of sojourning between home bases in and beyond Hong Kong. We suggest that the governance and politics of migration often revolve around power relationships between state and non-state actors and the changing climate of global politics. © 2023 SAGE Publications.
