Education of Korean youth in ex-soviet territories

Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers


This paper compares education of Korean minorities in Russia and former Soviet territories. They can be grouped into three: (1) descendants of the peninsular Korean migrants to the Russian Far East between the 1860s and the 1920s (2) Koreans in the Sakhalin Island of the Russian Federation conscripted to forced labor under Japanese colonial rule, and (3) higher education South Korean students amidst globalization. This paper compares their narratives of assimilation/integration processes in the context of education and social mobility. Attention is also paid to their mutual perceptions.
