Abstract

In understanding human security in Korea, the paper reviews the areas of human rights, economic equity, ecological balance as well as national security and prevention of war. National security has often been used to justify human cost derived from the imposition of policies and laws that support dominant political and economic elite. The authors examine factors that undermined human security during the Cold War era, then review more recent issues pertaining to the past legacy. Despite improvements in human rights, democratization in South Korea has yet to fulfill its promises of reduction in economic disparities and reforms of security laws as well as the need for balance between ecological preservation and economic growth.
