The Korean peninsula, as a divided nation between the North and South, is symptomatic of the global strategic significance attached to this region. This course explores the political development of the Korean peninsula with a focus on South Korean politics and society. It examines selected themes concerning political and social change emanating from rapid economic development in the South, which have ultimately distinguished the character of each state: with the North as one of the poorest in the world, and yet armed with nuclear facilities; and the South as the 15th largest economy in the world with a healthy but increasingly divisive democracy. The course will also cover the politics of North Korea, especially concerning its nuclear development policy. Special attention will be paid to consider the future prospects of inter-Korean relations, especially in light of the rapidly changing geopolitics in East Asia.
