Soviet Korean youth in post-Soviet Kyrgyzstan: Their education and mobility

Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers

Abstract

The championing political discourse of ‘Kyrgyzstan only for Kyrgyzs’ and practice of marginalization of minorities in Kyrgyzstan have forced the local Soviet Korean youth minority to devalue their traditional belief that assigns a strong correlation between education and upward social mobility. Amidst the paradox of a globalizing yet anti-multicultural post-Soviet Kyrgyzstan, Soviet Korean youth seem to have no alternatives but to embrace either the existing educational system with signs of glaring corruption and failure or another diaspora move.
