Rethinking Historical Injustice and Reconciliation in Northeast Asia: The Korean Experience

Gi-Wook Shin, Soon-Won Park, Daqing Yang, Chunghee Sarah Soh, Hideko Mitsui, Dong-Choon Kim, Tae-Ung Baik, Kyung-Yoong Bay, Hong Kal, Gavan McCormack, John Torpey, Chiho Sawada, Andrew Horvat, Wonhyuk Lim
Routledge, 2006 December 31, 2006

The Northeast Asian region has witnessed phenomenal economic growth and the spread of democratization in recent decades, yet wounds from past wrongs - committed in times of colonialism, war, and dictatorship - still remain. Of all the countries in the northeast region coping with historical injustice, the Republic of Korea has the rare distinction of confronting internal and external historical injustices simultaneously, both as a victim and as a perpetrator.

Ethnic Nationalism in Korea: Genealogy, Politics, and Legacy

Gi-Wook Shin
Stanford University Press: Studies of the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center, 2006 March 1, 2006

This book explains the roots, politics, and legacy of Korean ethnic nationalism, which is based on the sense of a shared bloodline and ancestry. Belief in a racially distinct and ethnically homogeneous nation is widely shared on both sides of the Korean peninsula, although some scholars believe it is a myth with little historical basis.

North Korea: 2005 and Beyond

Philip Yun, Gi-Wook Shin, Robert Carlin, Haksoon Paik, William B. Brown, Yong Sueng Dong, David Hawk, Kim Ki-Sik, Scott Snyder, Taik-Young Hamm, Henry S. Rowen
Shorenstein APARC, Brookings Institution Press, 2006 January 1, 2006

Ten years ago, in the summer of 1995, it was fashionable in Washington and Seoul to predict the imminent collapse of North Korea's political and economic systems, and even the state itself. While clearly an errant forecast, it is easy to see why pundits and analysts thought as they did. Kim Il-Sung had died. Kim's son and successor, Kim Jong-Il, was failing to lead just as the country suffered a massive agricultural failure. A nuclear-weapons dispute with the United States had forced a costly full-scale mobilization of the country's million-man army.

Asianism and Korea's Politics of Identity

Gi-Wook Shin
Inter-Asia Cultural Studies, 2005 December 1, 2005

This article examines Korea's politics of identity in the form of Asianism in the modern period, especially since Korea's incorporation into the modern world system in the late nineteenth century. Asianism, and regionalism generally, has become a salient policy strategy for the current South Korean government. However, Asianism has been a primary ideological current in modern Korea whose most recent incarnation should be understood in the larger historical context. This study traces the development of Asianism in four different periods: precolonial, colonial, Cold War, and postCold War.

Addressing the North Korea Nuclear Challenge

Michael H. Armacost, Daniel I. Okimoto, Gi-Wook Shin
Shorenstein APARC, 2003 April 1, 2003

North Korea's renewed bid for nuclear weapons poses an urgent, serious foreign policy challenge to the United States. The current situation -- though it bears a resemblance to the events of 1993-1994 -- is far more dangerous and difficult. North Korea has developed longer-range ballistic missiles; South Korea's growing nationalism has put its U.S. relations on shakier ground; and the United States is distracted by the wars on terrorism and for regime change in Iraq.

Paradox of Korean Globalization, The

Gi-Wook Shin
Shorenstein APARC, 2003 January 1, 2003

This chapter first offers a theoretical framework to explain coexistence of nationalism and globalization by considering two interrelated processes: 1) nationalist appropriation of globalization and 2) intensification of ethnic identity in reaction to globalization process. It then presents empirical evidence to demonstrate how these processes have worked in Korean globalization at both official and popular levels.

Social Conflict and Regime Formation: A Comparative Study of South Korea and Costa Rica

Gi-Wook Shin, Gary Hytrek
International Sociology, 2002 December 1, 2002

This article seeks to identify the social origins of authoritarianism in South Korea and social democracy in Costa Rica. Although both countries entered the modern world system through colonialism, they developed contrasting regime types in the postcolonial period. It is claimed that the key to divergent regime formation rested on the contrasting patterns of power distribution and coalition opportunities among the state and various social classes. This thesis uses historical evidence drawn from South Korea and Costa Rica.

Politics of Ethnic Nationalism in Korea, The

Gi-Wook Shin, Gihong Yi
Nations and Nationalism: Journal of the Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism, 1999 October 4, 1999

This study seeks to understand the conflict and tension arising from a territorially divided nation with a strong legacy of ethnic homogeneity, using the Korean case for consideration. In doing so, the authors rely on a recent development in social identity theory to explore the dynamics and conflict inherent in intra-group social identification.
