New Publication


Korea 2011: Politics, Economy and Society, edited by Rudiger Frank, James E. Hoare, Patrick Köllner and Susan Pares, contains concise overview articles covering domestic developments and the economy in both South and North Korea as well as inter-Korean relations and foreign relations of the two Koreas in 2010.

A detailed chronology complements these articles. South Korea-related refereed articles in the 2011 volume deal with concerted efforts at ‘nation branding’, political relations with India, overseas resource acquisition, labour migration policies and problems, the US Armed Forces and entertainment districts in and near Seoul, return migration, and the impact of Korean popular culture on East Asian identity in Europe. Additional refereed articles provide analyses of North Korea’s cultural discourse on Russia and Russians, economic relations between China and North Korea, and international attempts at dealing with North Korea’s nuclear weapons programmes.
