Republic of Korea (KOR)
The divided Korean Peninsula is a place that raises many questions and differing views. The people who live on both sides of the Line of Demarcation have not had the slightest idea since the end of the war of the direction in which the fates of those on the opposite side had developed. There is also no postal connection between the capitals of the two states.
Identifying the dimensions that were affected by the division of the Korean Peninsula The division of the Korean Peninsula between the two new states affected several areas. For centuries, the Koreans were one united nation, and the division was thus reflected in all major dimensions. First, I would like to identify and name the most important ones. In the further course of the work, I will deal in detail with only a few of them, which, however, are based on other, less visible consequences, and therefore it is necessary to create a comprehensive overview. The main areas include cultural, demographic, political, security and socio-economic. The consequences of the partition of Korea affected all these areas.
The Korean Peninsula before the division and during the 20th century until the 1990s From 1910 to 1945, Korea was under Japanese administration, and especially during World War II, it was under great pressure from the Japanese side. Japan was preparing for war and needed the resources found on the Korean Peninsula.
The social consequences of the division of the Korean Peninsula for both countries today, with an emphasis on the DPRK Freedom of the population, respect for basic human rights, education and access to health care are of great importance for human life and . The causes and suggestions that have laid the foundation for the current situation will be analyzed in the subchapters for each country separately, as they vary greatly.
The economic consequences of the division of the Korean Peninsula for both countries from the end of the 20th century to the present with an emphasis on the DPRK The main event that affected both parts of the Korean Peninsula was undoubtedly the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union. This event, together with the political and economic foundations that have been established since the inception of both states , has been the cause of the changes that have followed over the next two decades. The next rapid wave of industrialization and modernization had different consequences in both countries. In North Korea, modern totalitarianism has been completed and a regime that has withstood even the greatest economic crises has not collapsed. By contrast, South Korea has embarked on a rapid rise and development in all areas of political, social and economic life and is becoming one of the world's economic powers.
Despite all the negative analyzes and economic problems, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea remains unique in many ways, and it will be interesting to see how long it lasts in isolation and closed to political and economic reforms.
Introduction The divided Korean Peninsula is a place that raises many questions and differing views. People who live on both sides of the Line of Demarcation have not had the slightest idea since the end of the war of the direction in which the fates of those on the opposite side were unfolding. There is also no postal connection between the capitals of the two states.
Thirty years ago, on October 26, 1979, General Park Chung Hee, President of the Republic of Korea, was shot dead. In my opinion, his life and the circumstances of the assassination illustrate very well the complex history of the Korean Peninsula.
The Korean peninsula, especially its northern half, is not quite unknown in our country. Especially recently, after a bloody North-South incident on Jonpjjong Island, he has been increasingly washed by the media. The question is, especially in these circumstances, the depth or objectivity of the information available in our country, which significantly distorts the very abysmalness of linguistic and cultural differences.
