Korea Economic Institute of America Presents:

AAS 2015 | The Impact of National Identities on the Reunification of Korea

Read Event Description

Event Date

March 29th 12:00pm - 12:00am EST

Event Description

Dr. Gilbert Rozman, Dr. Sandra Fahy and Dr. Jiyoon Kim approached the panel discussion from three perspectives: a micro approach focusing on the small unifications of families through remittances and phone calls; public opinions polls of South Korean perspectives of North Korean defectors; and analyzing the attitude of reunification through regional media.

Drawing from theses sociological and anthropological perspectives, panelists evaluated how national identities are influencing interactions between the North and South Korea as well as attitudes of other regional countries that affect the prospects for reunification.
