Reflections through a local lens on Muto Ichiyo's ideas of alternative practices : a Hong Kong perspective

Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)

Abstract

This paper discusses the views of Muto Ichiyo, an important thinker and social activist in Japan and the Inter-Asian context, on alternative practices through reviewing the actual implementation of several community projects in Hong Kong and mainland China. Many of these community projects are informed by visions and notions of alternative practices of, say, a Muto typeconstructing a new democratic experience, locally rooted and globally connected, which will contribute to a transformed and transformative socio-cultural structure/relation that is non-statist and non-capitalist in nature. Through scrutinizing the effectiveness of these projects in local contexts, we hope to facilitate a dialogue with Muto on his notions of transborder alliance of people/hope and alternative development.
