It is fascinating to see that the term “Occupy Seoul” which is associated with protest movements around the world, has been adopted by the City of Seoul as part of its regular administrative policy.
“Occupy Seoul” refers to a “policy expo for a ‘Seoul of Hope'” held October 13-14, 2012.
The event is billed as a “gathering for participation in policy” or “Seminar on City Goverment Policy”
Suggesting that citizens will be able to participate in the policy debate and provide their opinions.
The process for the discussion is described here.
As I did not attend the event, I cannot describe its content or assess the significance of the approach. It is interesting that the City of Seoul was able to adopt this term, however.
