"Reflections on Korean Democracy"

Korea Program Seminar

Hak-kyu Sohn, Visiting Scholar, Shorenstein APARC [Asia Pacific
Research Center, Stanford University]; former Chairman of Democratic
Party, South Korea

Hak-kyu Sohn, a career politician and the former chairman of the South
Korea's Democratic Party, will share his insights into Korean
democracy based on his decades of experience in politics.

As a student activist, Sohn participated in Korea's democratization
movement, which rose up against the nation's military dictatorship,
and he also led labor and human rights movements. As a result of his
activities under South Korea's oppresive military rule, Sohn was
imprisoned. Later, he went on to be appointed minister of health and
welfare, became governor of Gyonggi Province, and served four terms as
a member of the National Assembly.

Sohn received a PhD in politics from University of Oxford, England,
and BA in political science from Seoul National University.
