Additional Information

There have been three uprisings to change governments in South Korea since 1945. Although the three have a lot in common, there are critical differences between those before 2000 and after 2000. Professor Park will examine the commonality and distinction through comparison of uprisings in 1960, 1987, and 2016-2017, which has brought same and different results. The analysis would be on not only from the viewpoint of civil society, but from the conservative group.
