Book excerpt: The aim of this project is to research the necessity of international cooperation on Korean unification in legal terms as South Korea’s Unification Policy and how issues of the Korean Peninsula have been dealt with in the international framework. Since this is the second year of a five-year project, the conceptual aspect requires clarification in the overall aspect and this requires a multidisciplinary approach. But the main focus remains the legal aspect, international law, in particular. This study assumes that unification will be a gradual process, generally in three stages: (1) inter-Korean cooperation, (2) negotiation for inter-Korean unification (be it North Korea’s collapse, or actual inter-Korean negotiation for unification, this stage includes any inter-Korean negotiation for unification and international negotiation formula, such as Six Party Talks, etc.), and (3) post-unification integration. The study begins with the understanding that South Korea needs to be prepared for legal matters potentially arising in these processes. The project this year, in particular, deals with the legal issues that should be dealt with in the first and second stages. The scope of the papers in this project covers four main areas. The first is time span. The research for this project covers the 19th century to the present and draws future-oriented implications, but the main focus is on current issues. The second is in regard to approaches. The study deals with three main approaches: historical, political, and legal, but for purposes of this project, the main focus is on the legal aspect. The third concerns the issues addressed. These are the nuclear issue, the military issue, inter-Korean cooperation issues, and the human rights issue. Finally, the scope of actors considered includes South and North Korea, neighboring countries (the U.S., China, Japan, and Russia), and international organizations (e.g., UN, WFP, WHO, etc.). The papers included here are organized into three main sections. The first concerns the meaning of Korean unification and the context of international cooperation. Park Jong-Chul provides a general overview of the Park Geun-Hye administration’s North Korea and unification policy, referred to as “Trustpolitik,” and the trust-building process on the Korean Peninsula, as well as the need for international cooperation. Sue Mi Terry examines the U.S. and China’s perspective on the issues laid out above. She explores areas where U.S.-China interests converge and diverge and whether strategic cooperation and coordination between the two nations are possible in the case of Korean unification. The second section presents historical and legal perspectives related to the situation on the Korean peninsula. Charles K. Armstrong’s work on the historical perspective is divided into three sections chronologically: (1) the struggle of 19th Century Korea to become a modern sovereign state and its failure with the advent of colonial rule, (2) war leading to the division of the Korean Peninsula, and (3) the inter-Korean situation based on de facto recognition (as opposed to de jure) as a political entity arising out of the 1972 Joint Communiqué and the “special relationship” from then on. Next, Roh Jeong-Ho provides a legal approach to the question of inter-Korean relations and the debate on unification by dividing the period from 1876 to the present day into five distinct periods and examining the limitations to the legal order and the evolution of world order as they pertain to Korea. Finally, Leon V. Sigal discusses how international law and institutions might improve South Korean security and facilitate inter-Korean reconciliation with special attention to confidence-building in the West Sea. The third section examines in greater detail the legal aspects of Inter-Korean Cooperation and human rights. Regarding human rights, it is important to consider the link between inter-Korean cooperation and human rights. The improvement of human rights and people’s livelihood in North Korea, which is part of the ultimate goal of unification, can be achieved by inter-Korean cooperation. Inter-Korean cooperation leads to inducing change in North Korea, which then logically leads to the improvement of human rights in North Korea. Lee Hyo-Won focuses on the legal matters regarding the establishment of a DMZ World Peace Park. Soung Jea-Hyen looks at the legal matters regarding the internationalization of the Gaeseong Industrial Complex. Cho Jung-Hyun provides an analysis of the contents and legal implications of the recent outcome of the UN Commission of Inquiry (COI) on Human Rights in the DPRK, such as the meaning of stating “crimes against humanity,” the notion of Responsibility to Protect (R2P) in respect to North Korea, and transitional justice in the possible post-unification stage. Finally, David Hawk tracks North Korean human rights developments in the post-COI period. Preface/ Jong-Chul Park and Jeong-Ho Roh I.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This utilizes a unique international law perspective to examine the actions and inactions of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in regard to international security and human rights concerns in North Korea. The book will demonstrate how the two issues of nuclear weapons and the human rights abuses in North Korea are interconnected and why the international community should be applying the same international law framework to each to find a solution for both. The book analyses the North Korea's nuclear weapons situation from political, military, historical and legal angles examining the DPRK's policy objectives involving international security and Korean unification. The book goes on to explore the human rights abuses inflicted on the North Korean people by their own government and which include extermination, torture, and crimes of association, as well as collective retribution inside and outside its system of concentration camps. The book investigates the North Korean situation with a view towards redress through an international framework. North Korea's gross and systematic violations of human rights and defiant military actions through specific violations of international law are assessed including the contravention of the treaties that North Korea itself has ratified, to provide a proper foundation for redressing these international crimes through a tribunal. The specific objectives and actions of the North Korean government are analyzed according to applicable treaty law, jus cogens norms, customary international law, and other types of international legal obligations. It pinpoints the sources and underpinnings of the regional nuclear crisis and offer solutions for dealing with international security surrounding the Korean Peninsula. The book puts forward a proposal for the creation of a tribunal to prosecute those at the top of the regime for international crimes and human rights abuses after a reunification of the peninsula.

Download or read book The Capitalist Unconscious PDF or another Format written by Hyun Ok Park and published by Columbia University Press. This book was released on 2015-09-01 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The unification of North and South Korea is widely considered an unresolved and volatile matter for the global order, but this book argues capital has already unified Korea in a transnational form. As Hyun Ok Park demonstrates, rather than territorial integration and family union, the capitalist unconscious drives the current unification, imagining the capitalist integration of the Korean peninsula and the Korean diaspora as a new democratic moment. Based on extensive archival and ethnographic research in South Korea and China, The Capitalist Unconscious shows how the hegemonic democratic politics of the post-Cold War era (reparation, peace, and human rights) have consigned the rights of migrant laborers—protagonists of transnational Korea—to identity politics, constitutionalism, and cosmopolitanism. Park reveals the riveting capitalist logic of these politics, which underpins legal and policy debates, social activism, and media spectacle. While rethinking the historical trajectory of Cold War industrialism and its subsequent liberal path, this book also probes memories of such key events as the North Korean and Chinese revolutions, which are integral to migrants' reckoning with capitalist allures and communal possibilities. Casting capitalist democracy within an innovative framework of historical repetition, Park elucidates the form and content of the capitalist unconscious at different historical moments and dissolves the modern opposition among socialism, democracy, and dictatorship. The Capitalist Unconscious astutely explores the neoliberal present's past and introduces a compelling approach to the question of history and contemporaneity.

Download or read book Korean Unification and After PDF or another Format written by Robert Dujarric and published by Hudson Inst. This book was released on 2000 with total page 106 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Though North Korea has survived longer than many expected, its fate remains uncertain. At any time it could collapse. The United States and its allies thus need to be ready to adapt to a post-North Korea world. The critical question for the United States is the future of its military forces in Korea and Japan. Unification, or any significant lowering of the North Korean threat, could lead the United States to cut its military presence in Asia. This book presents the arguments in favor and against a continued long-term U.S. military presence in Korea and Asia and explores different possible force structures for U.S. forces after unification. It concludes by explaining that after Korean unification the United States military deployment in Korea and Japan, including a large ground component, is vital for the security of the region.

Book excerpt: These essays support the argument that strong and effective presidential leadership is the most important prerequisite for South Korea to sustain and project its influence abroad. That leadership should be attentive to the need for public consensus and should operate within established legislative mechanisms that ensure public accountability. The underlying structures sustaining South Korea’s foreign policy formation are generally sound; the bigger challenge is to manage domestic politics in ways that promote public confidence about the direction and accountability of presidential leadership in foreign policy.
Download or read book Korea PDF or another Format written by Robert Dujarric and published by Hudson Inst. This book was released on 1998 with total page 156 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Korea has long been at the center of East Asian politics, and the strength of the South Korean economy ensures that it will only become more important in the coming years. With North Korea's attempts to develop nuclear weapons and its ominous behavior toward its neighbor to the south, the divided country is a serious security concern. Yet there is a strong desire in both countries for a unified Korea. This book takes a clear-eyed look at the implications of Korean reunification for Northeast Asia and U.S. security policy in the region. The authors note that Korean reunification, or some sort of Korean peace treaty, is likely to occur in the coming decade, possibly very soon. This significant change in Korean relations will create a radically new situation in the region. Korean unification will open up the issues of a continued U.S. military presence in Korea (and possibly in Japan as well) and of relations between Korea and its Asian neighbors (particularly China and Japan) and Russia. Korean unification, they argue, will pose severe challenges for Japan and China in particular. The contributors argue that a continued American military deployment in Korea--and in Japan--will be necessary after unification to maintain peace and stability in Northeast Asia. They provide a detailed analysis of the political, economic, social, and cultural implications of Korean unification and offer insights into how U.S. policy can help ensure continued peace in the region.

This book was released on 2016-06-23 with total page 920 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Responsibility to Protect (R2P) is intended to provide an effective framework for responding to crimes of genocide, ethnic cleansing, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. It is a response to the many conscious-shocking cases where atrocities - on the worst scale - have occurred even during the post 1945 period when the United Nations was built to save us all from the scourge of genocide. The R2P concept accords to sovereign states and international institutions a responsibility to assist peoples who are at risk - or experiencing - the worst atrocities. R2P maintains that collective action should be taken by members of the United Nations to prevent or halt such gross violations of basic human rights. This Handbook, containing contributions from leading theorists, and practitioners (including former foreign ministers and special advisors), examines the progress that has been made in the last 10 years; it also looks forward to likely developments in the next decade.
