民粹主義與政治主體的生成 : 社民連的個案, Chak Sang Pang Jul 2011

民粹主義與政治主體的生成 : 社民連的個案, Chak Sang Pang

Theses & Dissertations

拉克勞提出民粹主義是集體身份建構過程的理論:人們透過空洞能指扣連社會上的不同訴求,建立人民與權力的對立陣線,生成集體的身分認同。這與把社會上的群體(如階級)簡 單地視為分析單位的經典馬克思主義分析方法及理性選擇論等不同。本研究以香港政團「社民連」為個案,分析民粹主義的操作。前設是把人們於社會中的位置及利益與其身分認同脫鈎,視身分認同為話語操作的結果。

本研究將使用這一框架,分析於大眾媒體與網上這兩個不同的公共的討論中,社民連被如何表述,令人們可把不同的訴求扣連到「社民連」這概念之上。本研究將指出,社民連雖然號 稱基層黨,但「基層」一詞矛盾重重,社民連只有透過定位為與傳統政治秩序割裂而具多重 意義的「激進派」,吸納傳統「泛民」未能吸納的政治能量,進而產生一些與傳統香港政治 中泛民對建制的對立不同的新主體。於主流傳媒排斥這一新主體的背景下,人們不但透過互 聯網互通消息,甚至以「網民」作為身分認同,與主流傳媒及政治秩序對抗。

Scholars have traditionally offered explanations through either the strategic role of Israel to the US, or domestic factors including the Jewish lobbies in the US, or the cultural affinities between the two states. However, they tend to emphasize the significance of only one particular dimension, marginalizing possible insights from competitive dimensions.

This research aims to offer a different approach to study US-Israeli relations through alliance management theories. Although there are no formal military treaties between the US ...
