ABSTRACT

The terrorist attacks has continuously evolved and the environments of terrorism has also been changed. There is no exception for the Republic of Korea. The environments of terrorism surrounding the Republic of Korea have also been changed through a process of evolution. However, the public has only a superficial understanding of the matter. Accordingly, there is now growing concern that the changing environments and diversified causes of terrorism surrounding the Republic of Korea. With the acceleration of internationalization, the total number of Korean visiting foreign countries has been dramatically increased resulting in the increase of the victims to the terrorist attacks at abroad. The dispatch of forces to Islamic countries including Afghan and Iraq also was one of the major causes for terrorism surrounding the Republic of Korea. In addition, the number of the entry of foreign national workers, international marriage immigrants, self-exiled North Korean people into the Republic of Korea has also been increased. They are suffering from the inequality of treatment including delayed payment of wages, unlawful physical punishment and racial discrimination, which is one of the causes for the social conflicts and will be a root course of the domestic terrorism in the near future. In this connection, the bomb attacks at Madrid of Spain and London of the United Kingdom gave us a invaluable lesson. This two incidents were committed by their own nationals who have the parents of migrator from Morocco and Pakistan. According to the result of the investigations, one of the reasons of this two incidents was the inequality of treatment. This incidents showed that we should not remain an idle spectator by the same token. There is not much difference between those countries and the Republic of Korea in terms of environments. The purpose of this paper is to present the direction of the policy against terrorism through the analysis on the terrorism related environment that the Republic of Korea is facing and suggestion of the possible main body of the terrorism in the near future
