Information Expansion in North Korea: Current efforts and challenges

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will aim to broaden understanding and raise international awareness about the current situation of the government censorship in North Korea. The extent of the government censorship in North Korea is beyond comparison in the 21st century, but the significance of this issue is underrepresented on the global stage. The access to the Internet or foreign media is extremely restricted in the country. During the session, the panel speakers will 1) briefly introduce current research on the government censorship and surveillance technologies in North Korea, such as how the government tracks down the information flow among people, 2) share the current efforts and approaches of human rights activists to expand information into the country in spite of the unprecedented government controls, and 3) open the discussion to brainstorm solutions with audience and seek for collaborations.
