Korean Unification Studies Web Site

Gun­ther Dil­worth has cre­at­ed a new Web site (cur­rent­ly a blog) on Kore­an uni­fi­ca­tion stud­ies. The site seeks to inspire debate and dis­cus­sion as well as to inform read­ers about issues relat­ed to the uni­fi­ca­tion of North and South Korea.

Key top­ics on the site include North and South Kore­an poli­cies on uni­fi­ca­tion, divid­ed-states the­o­ry, inter-Kore­an dia­logue and the lead­ers’ sum­mit, North Kore­an diplo­mat­ic nor­mal­iza­tion, South Kore­an pub­lic opin­ion on uni­fi­ca­tion, and third-coun­try inter­ests in Kore­an penin­su­la unification.The site is as yet very young, but Dil­worth expects to expand it to include a dis­cus­sion forum and doc­u­ment resources on Kore­an uni­fi­ca­tion. “Ulti­mate­ly,” he says, “it will serve as a bridge between Kore­an stud­ies aca­d­e­mics and pol­i­cy mak­ers, in both Korea and the west.”

The address of the blog is: www.koreanunification.net. The site’s admin­is­tra­tor can be con­tact­ed by e-mail at: koreanunification@gmail.com.
