KOREA forum SPECIAL Nr.4: Asylum, Migration, and
Integration – similar challenges, different patterns

KFS-EPRIE-2016-Cover.pngThe present issue focuses on the prevailing topic of migration and integration. This topic is highly controversial discussed within the EU and has already led to substantial changes in cooperation between EU member states. East Asian countries address these topics in different ways.

In this issue we focus on new thoughts and ideas and on critical perspectives of integration, where both sides are involved: the minority as well as the majority populations of a society. We want to give a forum to refugees and migrants who actively fight for their rights and needs. And we also want to provide a forum for specialists and experts working with them in the field.

The KOREA forum SPECIAL series on EPRIE explores the various topics touched upon in the seminar and therefore represents a platform for the ongoing exchange of opinions.

KOREA forum SPECIAL Nr.3: Nations and Identities

Cover_KF_Spezial_2015.jpg

This issue focuses on the emergence of national identities. What does consciousness draw on to be part of a nation? What images, metaphors and stereotypes are tied to it? And how can they be changed? Besides historical education and activities for peace education on a civil society level, new initiatives and obstacles for regional cooperation in East Asia are discussed.

The KOREA-forum SPECIAL series on EPRIE examines nations and nationalism against the backdrop of regional complexity. It explores the various topics touched upon in the seminar and therefore represents a platform for the ongoing exchange of opinions. More and more alumni make use of this opportunity to continue the dialogue.

"Concepts of Nations" was the title of EPRIE 2014 and is also the title of the second publication on EPRIE. The volume includes essays on the concepts of nations and the reconciliation between countries. Mediators also wrote about their experience in conflict resolution.

Several alumni of the program contributed to the issues: they summarized the content of EPRIE and wrote short essays on bilateral conflicts in East Asia and Europe. A memorandum of this year's participants - translated in Chinese, German, French, Japanese, Korean, Polish, and in the program language English - is also included.

KOREA forum SPEZIAL Nr.1: Past and Rapproachement
in Europe and Asia

Cover_KF_Spezial_2013.jpg

The first publication on EPRIE, the KOREA forum SPEZIAL No.1, covers the EPRIE seminars in 2012 and 2013. Both EPRIE seminars offered rich sources of highly interesting contributions. The editors of the Korea Forum took advantage of the opportunity to pool some selected contributions into a special publication with the topic, ›The Past and Rapprochement in Europe and East Asia‹.

It is significant that not only sophisticated experts shared their knowledge, but also young participants from five different countries. How were the ten to twelve day meetings in at least two countries and three cities received? Which prejudices existed? Which insights can they carry into future debate and discussion? The results come in a variety of formats – as speeches, as reports, as academic contributions and also as a joint memorandum, taking into account their differing perspectives, and which they translated into their respective languages – German, French, Japanese, Korean, Polish, and in the common language English. Since EPRIE 2012 was held in Grman and EPRIE 2013 in English language, the articles are written either in German or in English.
