« Democracy in crisis : Civil Society and democracy in post-democratization South Korea »
54 bd Raspail
After the 1987’s democratization, South Korean society witnessed the great upsurge of labor movements and civic organizations. But, in a staunchly anti-Communist South Korea, the numbers of people in labor unions remains about ten percent, which also may be the lowest among OECD countries. Community organization and civic participation in grass roots politics has been still underdeveloped, although there have been advances in the political democratization. As neo-liberalism or market fundamentalism took the place of anticommunist liberalism after 1997, the steps toward reforming labor relations and civil society have been distorted and weakened by which social power for deepening democratization and welfare state could not be sufficiently formed. I will give lectures on the situation of the Korean working class and civic organizations in order to explain current Korean political society in comparative perspective.
