ABSTRACT

Korea has been changing into a multi-cultural society since 2000. This change has enhanced the country by providing vivid examples of excellence, but has emerged as a serious problem in relation to crime occurrence in recent years. The reality is that due to a lack of government control and particularly due to cultural conflicts between Koreans and foreigners as a result of the sudden increase in foreign population, the risk of domestic terrorism has been on the rise. Of the various forms of terrorism, the type Korea is most at risk for is home-grown terrorism. Home-grown terrorism is a new type of terrorism. It is different from regular terrorism in the sense that this type of attack can cause more damage and it may be more difficult to find and disband this type of organization. Similarly, there may be a lack of time to respond to home-grown terrorism and fear may spread due to the mass media. In the face of these challenges, it is hard to say that the Korean Police Force has prepared an effective response. There is a lack of basic statistical information about foreigners in Korea and a lack of specialists in the field of home-grown terrorism. Therefore, this thesis looks into what an appropriate response to home-grown terrorism might be.
