On Korea Volume 6 - Full Version
The papers in this volume address some of the key issues that impacted Korea in 2012 and some important trends that will influence future policies. In the first year following the death of Kim Jong-il, this volume contains four papers focused on North Korea, two specifically examining the political and economic developments in North Korea after the death of Kim Jong-il. Other articles in this volume analyze South Korea’s hosting of the Nuclear Security Summit as well as the effect of agricultural issues on politics in South Korea. Lastly, this volume has excellent pieces on South Korean demographics and economics and a look at the effect of Korean American voting behavior in U.S. elections. KEI strives to choose papers that are well balanced, policy relevant, and make a contribution to areas not traditionally covered by mainstream scholarship. We feel the authors of these pieces have helped us achieve those goals.
