《認識彭明敏 瞻望新台灣》 青年徵文活動 緣起 About the Essay Contest
2022年仙逝的彭明敏教授於99年前出生於日治台灣,身為國際法權威的彭教授畢業於台灣大學,曾遠赴歐美留學深造並任教,返台後曾任中華民國駐聯合國代表團顧問,是台灣史上少見的優秀法政菁英。

彭教授一生不僅經歷過日本殖民強權統治,曾為「中華民國十大傑出青年」和聯合國代表團顧問的他也目睹流亡至台灣的中華民國政府,代表盟軍接收台灣後幾十年的極權專制,而家鄉和國際局勢的巨變促使他更積極地參與台灣獨立運動。

彭明敏曾與已故的前立委謝聰敏和人權運動者魏廷朝共同起草「台灣自救運動宣言」表達「一中一台」的國際現實,並為此遭國民黨政府判刑,迫使他必須流亡海外。彭明敏在海外的期間致力於落實台灣民主化,曾協助創立台灣人公共事委會(FAPA)和出任台獨聯盟主席,更在1996年代表在野的民進黨參與首次中華民國總統直選。彭教授一生出版不少知名著作,幾十年來啟發無數海內外台灣政治人才及領袖,對台灣民主運動歷史有深遠的影響。

本活動主辦單位期待讓海外台美僑青以研讀彭教授著作的方式緬懷追思,更能藉此活動促進台灣意識覺醒,將自己在讀完彭教授著作後,對台灣未來走向產生的新想法以撰文方式充分表達。主辦單位期待這活動能讓新世代台美人能更了解台美人歷史,珍惜上一代為民主公義的犧牲與努力,也能讓新世代台美人分享他們前瞻性的視野。

Professor Peng Ming-min, who has passed away in 2022 was born in Japanese-ruled Taiwan 99 years ago. Peng graduated from National Taiwan University and furthered his studies in Canada and Europe where he became an outstanding legal and political scholar, and later an authority on international legal studies. Peng returned to Taiwan and later became and adviser to the Representatives of Republic of China to the United Nations.

Professor Peng had not only experienced the colonial rule of Japan in his life, he has also witnessed the totalitarian rule of the Kuomintang(KMT) controlled Republic of China government on Taiwan, which has been a governing authority on Taiwan since they took over the island upon Japan’s surrender to the Allied Powers in 1945. Peng’s experience of the great changes in his hometown and the international situation at the time prompted him to be more proactively involved in the Taiwan independence movement.

One of Peng Ming-min’s most influential works was the 1964 manifesto A Declaration of Formosan Self-salvation that he co-drafted with the late former legislator Hsieh Tsung-min and human rights activist Wei Ting-chao,. Peng deemed the concept of “one China, one Taiwan" an international reality. That action did not bode well for Peng Ming-min was later persecuted by the KMT government and had to leave Taiwan as an exile and subsequently devoted himself to Taiwan's democratization while overseas. He assisted in the founding of the Formosan Association for Public Affairs(FAPA) and served as the president of the World United Formosans for Independence(WUFI). In 1996, he ran in the first direct presidential election of the Republic of China on Taiwan as Democratic Progressive Party’s presidential nominee. During his lifetime, Professor Peng published many well-known works, which inspired countless Taiwanese political figures and leaders for decades, and had a profound impact on Taiwan's democratic movement.

The event organizer hopes to let younger generation Taiwanese Americans have an opportunity to know more about Professor Peng by having a closer look into his works and use this meaningful essay contest as a way to commemorate Peng’s great contributions and awaken one’s Taiwanese consciousness in the process. The organizers hope that this contest will enable Taiwanese American youths to better understand Taiwanese American history, value the sacrifices and efforts of the pioneers for Taiwan’s democracy and social justice, and allow the new generation of Taiwanese Americans to share their forward-looking vision of Taiwan.
