We are pleased to invite you to the International Symposium "Division and Welfare: Toward A Participatory Peace-welfare State”co-organized by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) Korea Office, Kyung Hee Institute for Human Society (KIHS), Social Welfare Committee of People’s Solidarity for Participatory Democracy (PSPD), Center for Peace and Disarmament of People’s Solidarity for Participatory Democracy (PSPD), and Institute for Participatory Society (IPS) to be held on November 5, 2012 in Seoul.
Over the past two years, heated debates on how to realize a welfare state in Korea have continued. However, special circumstances of the country as a divided nation have been overlooked within these discussions. The International Symposium will provide a platform to share integrated perspectives on building a peaceful welfare state. In this symposium, we will raise questions on how to realize a welfare society in a divided nation and discuss concrete solutions to explore the relationship between a divided nation and welfare, welfare and peace, peace and democracy, and democracy and welfare. We will analyze various cases from different countries including Germany which was once a divided nation, Sweden which is an example of universal welfare state, Japan seeking to establish a welfare state while heading for peace nation, and thd US facing a dilemma between security and welfare. From case analysis, we hope to formulate specific future strategies on how to create a civil, participatory peace-welfare state in Korea.
We sincerely invite you to be a part of this symposium.
