    US Forces Korea and Northeast Asian Situation

    Park, Bonggyu | 2021, 5(4) | pp.29~55 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The situation in Northeast Asia is inextricably linked to the U.S. Forces Korea(USFK). Although the USFK was established and survived due to the situation in Northeast Asia, the situation in Northeast Asia is now likely to maintain stability and peace due to the USFK. That can be seen from the fact that the USFK continues through the Cold War and the post-Cold War, despite repeated withdrawal decisions, reversal, and reduction. In particular, the fact that the USFK, the product of the Cold War, survives in the midst of the post-Cold War suggests that the USFK is adapting to the changing security environment, or the situation in Northeast Asia. The USFK has been establishing and institutionalizing its identity to suit the new security environment in critical junctions. It is clear that the change in the identity of the USFK and the possibility of institutionalization will play an important role in the future of the USFK and affect the situation in Northeast Asia. They say that if the role and function of the USFK are properly established and functioned in Northeast Asia, which is unstable amid the North Korean nuclear issue and the U.S.-China hegemony competition, it can contribute significantly to peace and stability in the region.

    A Study on the Operation of the Reserve Forces and the International Cooperation in Disasters : Focusing on Local Governments and Regional Reserve Forces

    Jeong, Ill Seong | 2021, 5(4) | pp.101~125 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study proposes, in the event of a national disaster, a legal and institutional improvement plan necessary for local governments(LGs) to actively mobilize and utilize the Regional Reserve Forces(RRF) to respond to disasters. And this suggests the direction of international cooperation for Disaster Risk Reduction(DRR) by sharing Local Collaborative Governance (LCG) model between less developed countries and Korea. When a local disaster occurs, LGs should actively mobilize and utilize RRF. To this end, the system of RRF should be reorganized, such as command and control, organization, formation, compensation, etc. should be reorganized so that they can respond to the LG's request for disaster assistance. LGs would need more military's support in the Disaster management of the future. Therefore, LGs should put policy priority on disaster management and strive to establish LCG including RRF. If Korea can advance cooperation with regional countries through LG-centered Disaster-RCG of Korea, it will be able to contribute to Regional DRR and seek Cooperative Security.

    Analysis on “the Reports of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on the Implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women” : Focused on the Health Infrastructure Articles of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Periodic Reports

    Chulsoo Lee | 2021, 5(4) | pp.127~150 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to analyze and evaluate the health infrastructure-related articles of the DPRK's combined second, third and fourth periodic reports on the implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, which was submitted by North Korea to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women on May 3, 2016. The main subjects of this analysis are the health infrastructure-related articles in ① North Korea's combined second, third, and fourth periodic reports on the implementation of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, ② list of issues by the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, ③ North Korea's replies to the list of issues, and ④ concluding observations by the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. This study adopted qualitative research method, which is mainly used for literature research. The results of the analysis are as follows: First, in the combined periodic reports, North Korea partly made quantitative reporting on its health infrastructure, but most of the reporting was qualitative. This reporting behavior is almost the same with North Korea's previous reporting pattern. Second, in the list of issues, the Committee requested data on the reality of women's health in North Korea, which is an essential requirement for monitoring the implementation of the convention. Above all, the Committee's additional request is attributable to North Korea's poor reporting behavior. Third, in terms of the contents of North Korea's replies to the list of issues, the country omitted reporting on some issues and its replies were largely abstract and off the point. This kind of reporting manner of North Korea is a serious error, and it can be said that North Korea consequently lost its last chance to make a case for itself. Fourth, in concluding observations, the Committee raised an issue about the health care reality in North Korea, rather than making comments or advice on North Korea's health infrastructure. In other words, the Committee raised a question over the fundamental issues that should be addressed before the monitoring and evaluation, and these issues are the ones that North Korea is facing now and that should be resolved first for women's health of the country.

    A Study on the "Specific Functions" of Japan's Immigration Policy as a New System for Receiving Foreign Labors

    Youngeon Yim | Myoung Dong-Ho | 2021, 5(4) | pp.151~170 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to examine the change in immigration policy and its meaning in accordance with the increase in the number of foreigners in Japan. In particular, the purpose of this study is to analyze the background and characteristics of the introduction of 'specific functions' as a new system of the Japanese government, and to provide implications for foreign immigration policy in Korea. The research results are as follows. First, in the background of foreign policy transition in Japan, the economic cycle from growth to distribution develops in the process of improvement of the Japanese economy following the Abe administration's promotion of Abenomics, and it appears in a situation where the labor shortage of companies rises to the level after the bubble economy. Second, in the face of the shortage of foreign labor force, the Japanese government revised the basic policy on the operation of the system related to the status of residence for specific skills in 2019 in order to promote the proper operation of the system related to the status of residence for specific skills. Third, the nursing care industry accounted for the largest number of foreign talent recipients following the establishment of specific skills by the Japanese government, followed by restaurant industry, construction industry, building cleaning industry, agriculture, and food and beverage manufacturing industry. Fourth, the Japanese government is actively accepting foreign talents through the introduction of a new system for ‘specific skills’, and at the same time actively implementing support projects for them. In conclusion, the introduction of the new system of the Japanese government's policy for accepting foreigners was introduced at a time when the introduction of a long-term stable settlement system for foreign workers brought in an era of population decline and the realization of a symbiotic society became important. In the future, it is expected that it will be able to provide important implications for setting the policy direction for returning Koreans during the transition process of immigration policy in the era of population decline in Korea.

    Abstract PDF
    In the political aspect, AI technology acts as a new driving force for hegemony change. The technological shock of AI is shaking not only the global economy but also international politics. The United States and China are at the center of it, occupying the apex of the data value chain. The conflict between the United States and China over the hegemony of AI technology is also leading to competition in the data value chain led by AI, and the emerging China is clearly revealing its colors in both quantitative and qualitative terms. The Biden administration, launched this year, has launched AI.gov based on the artificial intelligence policy promoted by the Trump administration, suggesting the direction of the national AI policy. Therefore, this thesis analyzes the US AI policy trend with a focus on R&D, and intends to discuss our AI policy in the future.
