Call for Papers: Korea 2013–Politics, Economy and Society

The edi­tors of Korea-–Politics, Econ­o­my and Soci­ety, pub­lished annu­al­ly since 2007 by Brill (Leiden/Boston), are call­ing for papers for the 2013 edi­tion of the year­book (vol­ume 7). The Korea: Pol­i­tics, Econ­o­my and Soci­ety series is a source for up-to-date, con­cise infor­ma­tion on the Kore­an penin­su­la. It fea­tures ref­er­eed arti­cles on polit­i­cal, eco­nom­ic, and social aspects of both South and North Korea, while its sur­vey arti­cles pro­vide con­cise overviews of pol­i­tics, the econ­o­my, and the for­eign rela­tions of both Kore­as, as well as inter-Kore­an rela­tions.

The editors–Ruediger Frank, James E. Hoare, Patrick Koell­ner, and Susan Pares–invite pro­pos­als for papers for the ref­er­eed part of the year­book. The edi­tors are par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est­ed in papers deal­ing with North Korea and inter-Kore­an affairs and papers ana­lyz­ing Kore­an affairs from a com­par­a­tive per­spec­tive. Papers on oth­er top­ics falling with­in the scope of Korea-–Politics, Econ­o­my and Soci­ety are also very wel­come.
