ABSTRACT

The reflection on Universality reveals the new desire for diversity. Despite the boundary of the nation state decreasing, the ethnic concept is still valid. Today, the debate about integration in a multi-cultural society will demand, not ethnic homogeneity, but the integration of solidarity is based on diversity and heterogeneity. And this phenomenon affects the perception of people about Korean unification. The change of the international situation, of the people’s awareness for unification and of the social structure is toward a Multi-Cultural society, because the integration policy in their lives became more important. As the apathy of the young generation on the part does not affect his life, and the sensitivity of the young generation on the part of safety and stability in their lives, they do not care about ideological issues. The new unification policy is not the way of overcoming the conflict of ideology but the way of communication and acceptance in the life. Therefore, the Korean unification policy should be offered the new way of integration in the multi-cultural society.
