     View Summary

    This chapter assesses how the Korean War has been remembered in Korea and internationally through official memorials, museums, popular culture, and commemorative projects. The chapter focuses on the sharp divergence between collective memories in South Korea and among other countries who took part in the war; apart from the United States, the allies which fought on behalf of South Korea and under the auspices of the UN have been omitted from South Korean public memory. The chapter also considers the case of Zainichi Koreans, people of Korean descent living in Japan, who participated in the Korean War but were subsequently rejected by both South Korea and Japan, and officially forgotten until the beginning of 21st century. The conclusion notes that while closing this memory ‘gap’ present dilemmas, diverging memories among the parties to the Korean War and within the Korean diaspora are stumbling blocks to contemporary peace efforts.

     View Summary

    This project had examined the Japan-Korea relations from the view point of civil society movements and international understanding education program. Over the past 30 years, the relations between Japan and South Korea have experienced both good and bad situations due to historical perception and education, territorial disputes and so on. In this research project, the key assumptions were set that grassroots movement and civil society might affect more than the governmental policies of both countries.
    Gender gaps and generation gaps are found as the obstacles of diplomatic tensions, and thus there require further researches to promote reconciliation and trust-building between two countries as neighbors.

     View Summary

    The present research project studied the feminization of global labour migration in Japan and Korea, with emphasis on the cooperation between the diaspora communities and the local civil society. Vietnam and the Philippines were selected as sending countries. The research studied the insecurity of women migrants in their public and intimate lives and indicated the importance of developing new concepts about the trans-border public domain taking account of their double livelihood in the communities they live in and the ones they left behind

     View Summary

    I have published a series of documents related with the normalization between Japan and Korea from the publishing company of GendaiShiryo Shuppan. This series will be continued even after the project ended, following the schedule of the publishing company. Also two of the project members and I edited two volumes of the monograph, entitled 'The normalization between Japan and Korea as a history,' to be soon published by Hosei University Press with assistance of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. Then, in January 2010, I organized a public symposium entitled "Modern Historical Meanings of the Normalization between Japan and Korea," with generous assistance of the Asahi and Toa Ilbo newspaper companies. Its aim was to propagate the accomplishments of our project in the context of contemporary public concerns, including the process of normalization between North Korea and Japan in 2010. Finally, I organized two panels at the annual conventions of academic associations : Japan International Studies' Association in Tsukuba in 2008 and Association for Asian Studies in Chicago in 2009 (together with Korean project members), with an aim to receive feedback from other scholars in the related academic fields
