Research findings from an ethnographic study into low-income Pakistani families in Hong Kong indicate the existence of significant barriers in society militating against social inclusion. Racial discrimination contributes to marginalisation, reducing life opportunities. Identified problems include educational, linguistic and employment issues. These factors lead to social exclusion and weakened social capital.
