Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Thema: Frieden und Konflikte, Sicherheit, Note: 2,0, Westfalische Wilhelms-Universitat Munster (Institut fur Politikwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Der Korea Krieg und die Folgen, 14 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: In der vorliegenden Arbeit behandle ich die Position der Sowjetunion unter Beachtung der sowjetischen Aussenpolitik, den Beziehungen zu den USA nach 1945 und dem Verhaltnis zu China und Nordkorea., Abstract: Korea war fur die Grossmachte China, Russland, Japan und die USA seit geraumer Zeit von strategischer Bedeutung fur den Einfluss in Nordostasien. Das gebirgige Land musste seit Beginn des 16. Jahrhunderts verschiedene politische Krisen uberstehen. Das Interesse Russlands bestand nicht nur wegen der ungefahr 20 Kilometer langen gemeinsamen Grenze entlang des Tumen-Flusses (auch: Tumangan), sondern auch aus geopolitischen Grunden. 1945 begannen sowjetische Truppen mit der Befreiung" Koreas von Norden her. Sie wurden von ein oder zwei koreanischen Divisionen, die in der UdSSR ausgebildet wurden, begleitet. Mit den von Suden anruckenden Amerikanern wurde der 38. Breitengrad unter rein militarischen Gesichtspunkten ohne langere Diskussion als Demarkationslinie festgelegt. Mit der Kapitulation Japans endete 1945 die japanische Besatzung Koreas. Die Besatzungsrechte gingen auf die Alliierten uber. Bereits 1945/46 zeichnete sich eine Teilung des Landes ab, als die sowjetischen Behorden eine Aufhebung der Verkehrsbeschrankungen sowie eine wirtschaftliche und administrative Integration ablehnten. Die nordkoreanische Armee wurde bereits zu diesem Zeitpunkt von den Sowjets mit Kriegsgerat und Ausbildungshilfe unterstutzt. In der sudlichen Besatzungszone versuchten die USA eine Demokratisierung von unten. Im Norden gelang es den Kommunisten mit Hilfe der Sowjetunion alle politischen Gegner zu neutralisieren. Anfang 1950 begann Kim Il Sung, die mil"

This book provides an evenhanded coverage of Korea''s turbulent history during the last one hundred years, from seclusion to division. It focuses particularly on the development of the two different and antagonistic states on the peninsula since 1945. The author sees both countries through the windows of their possibilities and interests. He supplements his narrative, which makes use of rich source material, with observations he has made in South Korea, where he spent more than ten years from the 1970s to the 1990s, and where he had access to politicians and opinion leaders. The book starts by describing how the Hermit Kingdom was exposed to the greed of foreign powers at the end of the 19th century and how it became the victim of imperialistic Japan, then account is given of the country''s division and the hardening of that division through the Korean War. The rule of the military and the final triumph of civilian democrats in South Korea are analyzed in much detail. One chapter is devoted to the rise and intermittent decline of the South Korean economy. The history of North Korea under Kim II Sung and under his son is told, before the foreign relations of both Koreas are explained. A chapter on the so far overwhelmingly antagonistic South-North relations concludes the book. Sample Chapter(s). Foreword (95 KB). Chapter 1: The Hermit Kingdom (172 KB).

The divided families problem is a serious social issue in North and South Korea, involving hundreds of thousands of first generation divided family members, most of whom have not seen their relatives since the Korean War. It is the most pressing humanitarian issue between the two Koreas, and is connected to the greater issue of human rights in North Korea today. However, little serious academic work exists on the subject, in either English or Korean. This new study, based on research conducted in Korea, including interviews in 2001 with Korean families who benefited from the most recent exchanges, addresses the many issues surrounding the divided family problem, and highlights its importance in the path towards Korean rapprochement.

Korea is one of the critical flashpoints in the world today. News of North Korea′s recent nuclear tests, conducted in defiance of international pressure, drew widespread condemnation and raised serious concerns about the threat now posed to regional and international security by the regime of North Korea′s dear leader Kim Jong–Il. This book penetrates the veil surrounding the conflict on the Korean peninsula and North Korea′s missile and nuclear programmes. It provides a thorough historical analysis of relations between the two Koreas since the Korean War, which traces both North Korea′s path to economic ruin and South Korea′s transition from struggling dictatorship to vibrant democracy. As well as examining the political and economic development of North and South Korea at the domestic level, the book goes on to explore regional relations with Russia, China and Japan and, most importantly, America′s dealings with Korea and its negotiations with North Korea, in particular. It concludes with an analysis of North Korea′s current nuclear programme and its likely impact on international security in the 21st century.

Die Fußball-Weltmeisterschaft in Südkorea und Japan 2002, der Besuch des japanischen Premierministers Koizumi in Pjöngjang im September des gleichen Jahres sowie die jüngsten Kontroversen um das nordkoreanische Nuklearprogramm haben das Verhältnis zwischen Japan und der koreanischen Halbinsel erneut ins Zentrum internationaler Aufmerksamkeit gerückt. Trotz andauernder Auseinandersetzungen um die Interpretation der modernen Geschichte verdeutlichte die gemeinsame Ausrichtung der Fußball-Weltmeisterschaft durch Südkorea und Japan neue Tendenzen der Annäherung und Kooperation im Verhältnis der beiden Nachbarn. Die in diesem Band vereinten Beiträge beleuchten die jüngsten Entwicklungen im Verhältnis Japans zu seinen koreanischen Nachbarn - jeweils aus der Perspektive koreanischer, japanischer und deutscher Expertinnen und Experten. Der Band beruht auf den Vorträgen einer internationalen Konferenz, die im September 2002 vom DIJ, dem Ost-West-Kolleg der Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung sowie dem Japanischen Kulturinstitut Köln in Brühl und Köln ausgerichtet wurde.
