village relocation program
|| The purpose of this essay is to examine the problems emerge from village relocation program by state apparatus. Hongmaogang, the district on Kaohsiung City in Taiwan, is a representative case of village relocation program. This program is in the largest scale in Taiwan. It is also the most significant program in Taiwan which has expended the most considerable budge and has moved abundant residents during nearly forty years.|
This study will explores the relocation of Hongmaogang by the anthropology theory of Abrams framework that distinguish the difference from “state idea” and “state system” to understand what is state. Author used “in-depth interview” and “archival analysis” to analyze this case. This study discovers that the planning and execution model of state apparatus runs similar with the concept of the ideology of developementalism which is mentioned by Ferguson's Anti-Political Machine and Scott’s High Modernity. Under the context, all the local culture, history, fisheries, and social relations in Hongmaogang are ignored by the government. That is to say that Taiwanese government simplifies Hongmaogang into an undeveloped district.
To summarize, this study reveals that the weak economic of the village is associated with the inappropriate planning of government. On the other hand, Taiwanese government believes that villages without relocation program are lagged. This essay is a comprehensive examination of the problems of space shaping in Taiwan.
