ABSTRACT

This paper has an ultimate purpose of searching the possibility of making the East-Sea Rim Region as an Ecological Community for the regionalization of the East-Sea Rim area. Given the purpose of this paper, I focused on looking into the following three issues. At first, I critically consider the contemporary ecological cooperation and practical activities for collaborating in the East Sea Rim region. Secondly, I examine the existing theories of ecological discourses, and find that there are some problems in applying these ecological discourses to the East Sea Rim regional studies. Finally, I try to find how to internalize ecological solidarity in this region and to suggest some practical plans for the solidarity. In conclusion, I emphasize on internalizing the regional characteristics of the East-Sea Rim area and on, in practice, containing the universal tenets of ecological community into the process of transforming the East-Sea Rim Region to a regional ecological community. In order to practice these conceptual findings in actual reality, I suggest to internalizing solidarity of the region with bioregional narratives and to conduct solidarity in actual reality by promoting workers' collaborating consciousness in terms of transnational consumers.
