公民參與,重要嗎?

公民參與,重要嗎?

政治面的公民參與,不只是衡量實質民主的重要指標,更是現代民主國家中不可或缺的部分。在臺灣,公民參與的管道相當多元,從納入法律保障的參政權,到線上或線下的接受資訊與政治討論、上街遊行、與家人朋友分享社會議題,都是重要的公民參與方式。

 

然而,當人民感到自己與政府決策間有斷層,就容易因為「政治效能感低」而和公民參與脫節。與公民參與脫節的選民,因失去對政策因果關係的深入暸解,較為容易被民粹主義候選人說服,尤其是當民粹主義(Populism)將社會問題包裝成吸引大眾的語言時。故民粹主義在缺乏有效政策討論風氣的社會有生長空間

 

臺灣計畫認為,民主制度下,社經議題的討論不應有資源或知識性的門檻。身為臺灣公民,我們都是民主不可分割的部分,我們都有責任和義務維繫臺灣的民主。當政府的決策與我們相關時,我們有暸解它的權利,更有發表意見、投入討論的義務。

 

臺灣計畫旨要將實際且有效的政治討論,帶進每個臺灣人的日常生活。透過中立地呈現社經與政治議題、鼓勵融入獨立思考與媒體識讀的素養教育,我們希望能降低實質政治討論的門檻,縮減政治與民眾的距離,有效地提升臺灣的公民意識。

Why Civic Engagement?

The disconnect between the people and the actions of the government limit opportunities for meaningful civic engagement.

 

The average voter who rarely considers questions of cause-and-effect for political decisions will naturally be drawn to populist figures who deceptively deconstruct social issues into language that appeals to the general public. The lack of discussion surrounding the consequences of certain political attitudes and why policies matter all create opportunities for populism.

 

The knowledge and means to discuss and address social, political, and economic issues in Taiwan should not be limited to the few who have power and access to resources, but to every individual. As citizens of the state, we are stakeholders to our democracy, and if an issue being deliberated on in the government concerns us, we have the right to be informed, and we have the right to provide meaningful input.

 

Project Taiwan seeks to create conditions that make substantive political discussions a reality for the average Taiwanese citizen. We push for the agenda of “enlightened citizenship” by fighting misinformation, promoting quality education, improving political literacy and boosting civic engagement.
