  • 2) Shortage of personnel resources is a basic limitation.


  • ▷ foreign visitors were satisfied with our peace

    journalism’s efforts.

  • the decision makers (local government policy makers) think that peace journalism is more valuable than instinctive economic effects by current cost-benefit analysis.

  • ▷Jeju Island is the second popular choice to hold international events in Korea after Seoul,

    FIFA World Cup, UNEP, ADB , and PATA Conference.


  • The 20th century---------------- social violence

    1910 to 1945(Colonialism, 4.3 Incident)

  • There is a Korean proverb,

    “A human being matures with his pain”.

  • Jeju islanders are not only the most peace-loving people, but also their efforts in searching for peace is by no means less than any other regions.
