Summary 內容: 美國大學生瓦姆比爾之死令大眾重新關注到北韓旅遊的安全問題,有人認為我們作為世界公民,眼光應該放遠,到北韓旅遊認識另一種文化實為無傷大雅;有人認為到北韓旅遊是對金正恩政權的間接支持,理應抵制。本節講座邀請熟悉兩韓事務的香港中文大學社會科學院全球研究課程助理講師鍾樂偉先生,及舉辦北韓遊學團Eastern Vision的兩位創辦人陳成軍先生和張振華先生,與大家分享他們對北韓旅行的看法。


The death of Otto Warmbier makes everyone want to think again whether it is ethical to travel to North Korea. Some people believe as a global citizen, it is not a problem if we want to understand the cultures and people from North Korea; while some people believe we should boycott this as it is an indirect support to Kim's repressive regime. 

We have invited Steve Chung, a Korea expert from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and Rubio and Jamie, the co-founders from Eastern Vision who frequently organise tours to North Korea to share their views on this controversial matter. 

This public lecture is the second session of the series ‘Travel with Controversy’.
