人肉搜索反腐功能背后的政治因素和权力博弈

#研究分享#【人肉搜索反腐功能背后的政治因素和权力博弈】人肉搜索诠释了公民的力量,网民不仅使用互联网来动员,还形成群体回应特定声明或过失行为。反腐人肉搜索是线上和线下因素的结合,如政府公信力缺失,举报腐败官员的正式渠道的缺乏,传统媒体受到严格监管等。这些事件较多以地方政府和个人官员作为揭发对象,很少针对中央政府,因为中央政府更多将互联网视为对地方政府的监控和训导的方式。但如果人肉搜索把矛头指向中央政府,人肉搜索依赖的匿名制将更难维持。

 

Hunting corrupt officials online: the human flesh search engine and the search for justice in China

Li Gao & James Stanyer

Abstract

While there is growing research on online politics in China some political uses of the Internet have tended to be overlooked. The focus of this article is on an emerging phenomenon in Chinese cyberspace, the human flesh search engine (HFSE), a term first used by the Chinese media to refer to the practice of online searching for people or ‘human hunting’. While existing examinations have focused on breaches of individual privacy by these so-called online ‘vigilantes’ this study focuses on the ability of HFSE to reveal norm transgressions by public officials and lead to their removal. In order to give readers a comprehensive overview of what an HFSE is, the first section of this article provides basic information about it. In the second part, 20 well-documented HFSE examples are listed to show their varying aims and then HFSEs which focus on local governments and officials are shown to highlight the political dimensions of HFSE. In the third section, four case studies of government/official-focused HFSE are explored in detail to show political HFSEs' internal processes and underlying mechanisms.
