香港前途研究計劃正式啟動!

香港眾志 於 2017-02-08 21:00:00 發佈


在香港主權移交二十年之際,無權、無勢、無票的香港市民,除了關注特首選舉,等待新特首的上場,又可以改變甚麼?

造王政治從來不是香港的唯一出路;透過發動民間研究,解密各國有關香港的密檔,揭露不同有關香港前途以及社會政策的歷史真相,才能讓我們在政治紛紛擾擾的狀態之下,重新找到我們自己的定位以及方向。

香港眾志、本土研究社以及一眾年輕學人,發起「香港前途研究計劃」,就是要從過去開始,重奪我們的未來。2017年,正值香港主權移交二十週年,亦是六七暴動五十週年的日子,加上八十年代有關香港前途談判的密檔逐漸解封,2017年,正正就是我們重新梳理香港的歷史,面對二次前途問題的重要一年。

「香港前途研究計劃」,需要大家的支持,讓我們從被塵封的過去開始,重奪香港的未來。

2017年,香港主權移交即將20年,亦代表離香港2047年只餘30年。昔日香港人曾在前途談判被拒之門外的歷史,到今天有多少能夠回復歷史真相? 在沒有檔案法保障的香港,特區政府還剩下多少資料與文件,足夠讓社會大眾「回到過去」啟示香港的未來?

Last century, the people of Hong Kong were denied a seat on the discussion table regarding the city’s own future. As Hong Kong approaches the 20th anniversary of its handover from British to Chinese rule in 2017, and with 30 more years until its current status expires, the former colony has now reached a critical opening through which we should revisit its history and envision a future.

2017年,是相當重要的一年,是香港再度打開二次前途問題、民主路向及社會課題討論的時機,檢視過往20年來香港各種變化。2017年,我們會面對以下的情況,讓我們具有裝備自己、重奪未來的條件與可能:

One way of achieving this would be to examine historical records that pertain to the handover talks and the fate of Hong Kong. The city’s lack of archival laws, however, means that access to these sources is sealed off from the public. Here are the new conditions that make our project possible starting in 2017:

  • 2017年正值是回歸20周年及六七暴動50五十周年,不少80年代有關香港前途及政制發展的密檔亦因30年密封期過去而解凍。
    A large amount of declassified records on Hong Kong’s future in the 1980s has been or will be made available after being kept out of public view for three decades.

  • 單是在英國國家檔案館 (National Archives),14個主要檔案系列內已有約5000份與香港問題相關的解密檔案,至今不少仍未被深究及公開。
    As many as 5,000 undisclosed files in 14 major document series related to Hong Kong at the UK National Archives have remained largely under-researched.

  • 除了較為人熟知的英國國家檔案館,美國有三大收藏香港密檔的總統圖書館,大部分剛解密的關鍵文件仍是鮮人發掘,有待公諸於世。
    Besides the UK National Archives, there are three major presidential libraries in America containing key documents that are somehow unfamiliar to the general public of Hong Kong.

  • 現時各類已被研究過的解密歷史檔案,都很少作開放公眾使用,亦未有讓公眾容易理解當中重要環節的公共方式。
    Current archival research rarely makes public their sources or highlight key findings to the wider community.

有鑑於此,本土研究社、香港眾志和一眾青年學人發起為期一年半的「香港前途研究計劃2017」,透過眾籌支援青年學人進行香港解密檔案的民間研究。這將為香港揭露更多有關香港前途及社會政策的歷史真相,對香港命運、社會運動及民主前路給予重要參照和啟示。透過重點檔案的分析研究,重新認識香港史,與及為當下香港各種問題論述提供扎實的基礎。


We—the Liber Research Community, Demosisto, and a group of young scholars—hereby propose a comprehensive archival research project that aims to look into previously undisclosed or classified files that may (re)initiate discussions about Hong Kong’s democratic development, post-2047 possibilities, and related social matters. By proposing an independent research project “Decoding Hong Kong’s History: Declassified Archival Research on the Future of Hong Kong”, we hope to contribute to exposing the historical truth of both Hong Kong’s future and many of the social realities. By analysing key undisclosed documents in different archives, our research would be critical not only for scholarship, but also for future social and democratic movements in Hong Kong and, eventually, for the fate of the city we live in.

戴雅門教授(史丹福大學政治及社會學系教授、民主理論學者)              

了解自身社會的歷史,是任何社會或社群最基本的權利之一。那些收藏於英國國家檔案館的香港殖民史,以及從英國統治轉型為一國兩制框架下特別行政區的關鍵史實,都陸續公諸於世。對研究香港政治轉型的學者——不論他們來自香港或其他地方——這些解密檔案提供了一個重要機會,讓他們得以建立一套更完整和具權威性的方式來理解香港的政治轉型。支持香港人擁有民主和了解自身的歷史,並不需要贊同港獨(而我也是如此),因此我樂於支持這個「解密歷史」的研究計畫。                                                                                 

Prof. Larry Diamond (Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University and Political Scientist)    

One of the most basic rights of any society or community is the right to know their own history. Crucial facts regarding Hong Kong's colonial history, and its transition from British rule to Special Administrative Region under the "one country, two systems" framework, reside in British archives that are gradually being declassified. This declassification provides an important opportunity for scholars from Hong Kong and elsewhere to establish a more complete and definitive understanding of the transition in Hong Kong's political status.One does not need to favor Hong Kong separatism (and I do not) in order to support the rights of Hong Kong's people to democracy, and to know their history. I am therefore pleased to support the project, "Decoding Hong Kong's History."

 

孔傑榮教授(紐約大學法律學系教授、亞美法研究所共同主任、外交關係協會資深研究員)                                         

這是一個在政治上具有深遠重要性的重大研究項目,值得我們支持。

Prof. Jerome A. Cohen (New York University Law School, Faculty Director of its US-Asia Law Institute, and Adjunct Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations)                                                                   This is a major research project of profound political importance. It deserves our support.                                  


羅永生教授(嶺南大學文化研究系副教授)                      

清理歷史,方能重新出發。當年香港前途談判太多暗室操作,要正確認識歷史,得靠客觀、深入而公開的研究。        

Prof. Law Wing Sang (Associate Professor of Cultural Studies, Lingnan University)                             

Knowledge of the past helps to guide our journey ahead. Too much of the negotiations over Hong Kong's past were kept in secret––a history that requires objective and substantive research to uncover.     


吳介民教授(台灣中研院社會所副研究員)                      

每一個世代,都是透過重新經驗那些他們不曾活過的歷史,來找尋他們的身份認同。「解碼」那些逐步公開但仍埋藏在歷史中的檔案,正是這個認同重構的過程。我完全支持這個由才華洋溢的年輕人們發起的、能夠帶給我們理解當前香港情況新視野的計劃。                                              

Prof. Wu,Jie-min (Associate Research Fellow, Institute of Sociology, Academia Sinica, Taiwan)                    

Every generation searches for their identity by re-experiencing the history they do not live through. To decode the declassified, but still buried documents belongs to such an identity formation process. I fully support this project proposed by the young talents, which can open up new horizons for our understanding of the current situation of Hong Kong.                                                      


許寶強教授(嶺南大學文化研究系副教授)                       

香港陷入今天的困局,在很大程度上與整個社會(尤其是在位者)的缺學無思有關。學習和思考是良好的社會發展的基礎,認真和系統的研究,則是學習和思考的主要形式和過程。   

Prof. Hui, Po Keung (Associate Professor, Department of Cultural Studies, Lingnan University)
The quagmire currently swallowing Hong Kong is largely led by thoughtless decisions of many, in particular those in power, and this must be avoided in no time. To escape the impasse and lead to a healthy social development, learning and thinking through diligent and systematic research are indispensable.                                                       


戴耀廷教授(香港大學法律系副教授)                             

 經過過去幾年的發展,香港年輕一代突破了上一代的自我局限,醒覺到他們是有權去決定香港的前途的。此計劃就是要幫助港人更明白香港的過去,好讓我們能更有力去掌握香港的未來。

Prof. Benny Tai Yiu Ting (Associate Professor, Faculty of Law at The University of Hong Kong)                     

Events over the past several years in Hong Kong have compelled our young generation to breakthrough the constraints self-imposed by their predecessors. Indeed, we as Hong Kongers, for the first time ever, realise that we do have a stake in determining our own future. This research project is to empower us to recapture our destiny by way of understanding our obscure past.                               


練乙錚博士(前《信報財經新聞》總編輯)                       

研究香港前途的計畫,為什麼要「往後看」,翻查各國新解密的歷史檔案呢?我認為一個重要的理由是,必須知道在香港近現代史的關鍵時刻裡、在關鍵的問題上,世界各國的政府知道一些什麼,看法和態度如何,他們怎樣反應,有些什麼效果和後果。這些認識有利於總結出,哪些方向行不通,哪些路徑還有潛力。有一些堅實答案的話,往前走的廣義的自決運動就可以比較少犯錯而事半功倍。我祝願計劃成功!

Dr. Joseph Lian Yizheng (Former Chief Editor of the Hong Kong Economic Journal)                                        

At first it seems paradoxical to underpin a research project on Hong Kong’s future on piles of declassified official documents from around the world, but then it makes real sense when one considers the specific context of Hong Kong’s recent history--that its future, and key moments were under the world’s spotlight. It is therefore necessary to have a thorough knowledge on what other governments of key countries thought about Hong Kong, their perspectives on and attitudes towards the evolving events on the transfer of sovereignty of Hong Kong in the 1980s. A solid research on these aspects is imperative to hint on what might or might not work as far as our self-determination movement in general is concerned. I wish this project every success.
