Public Scrutineers

Unveiling information that matters

Home

Welcome to Public Scrutineers‘ website. Here you will find out what the organization is about, our latest investigation reports and contact information.

Founded in 2017, based in Hong Kong. The founders of the Public Scrutineers believe members of the public have the power to shape our society in a better way. People, however, often feel small in face of social problems. They think they are not the one who can change the situation. It is hoped that this organization can facilitate members of the public to learn about issues that matter, express their opinion and use their influence to push for positive changes in our society.

In studying or exploring social issues that we care about, from time to time we need to communicate, if not confront, with government departments and corporations. Public Scrutineers will ask for information or replies from concerned parties on the issues and disclose the information when deemed necessary for public scrutiny. But after all, Public Scrutineers tends to adopt a soft, constructive instead of hostile approach when carrying out its work, building sustainable relationships with concerned parties.

Public Scrutineers is not for profit and currently does not generate any income.

To summarize, our objectives and approaches are as follows.

Objectives
– Facilitate the public to learn about important social issues
– Let voices of the public be heard
– Push for positive changes in our society

Approaches
– Investigative reporting
– Dialogue with gov. dept. and corporations
– Publish results of investigations on conventional/ social media channels

We have been established for a short period of time so our first report is not out yet.  We welcome any feedback and suggestions from you all. Simply send an e-mail to publicscrutineers@gmail.com will do.


公民監察者是個成立於2017年的香港運動組織。創辦人相信每位公民都擁有改變社會的力量,但在面對社會問題時,我們往往認為自己的力量渺小得不足以改變當前的處境。我們希望這個組織能方便市民得悉社會上的重要議題的相關資訊、為他們提供發表意見的渠道,以及集眾人的影響力去改變一些社會現狀。

在研究我們關心的社會問題時,我們或會要求政府部門或企業提供資訊或回應事件,及在適當情況下公開資料以供公眾監察。即使如此,公民監察者傾和以較溫和、正面的手法進行相關工作,與有關單位保持長遠關係,而非以敵對的姿態與有關單位對立。

公民監察者是非牟利的組織,目前完全沒有任何收入來源。

簡而言之,本組織的目標與採取的方法列舉如下。

目標
– 方便市民得悉社會上的重要議題的相關資訊
– 為市民提供發表意見的渠道
– 集眾人的影響力去改變一些社會現狀

採取的方法
– 調查式報導
– 與政府部門或企業對話
– 於傳統或社交媒體上發放調查結果

本組織成立日子尚短,因此調查報導仍在準備當中。歡迎各位向我們提出意見或建議。請發電郵至publicscrutineers@gmail.com
