Social Justice in South Korea

In May 2015, Dana Drecksel spent three weeks conducting research at the Republic of Korea’s Sogang University (Seoul) and Gangjeong Village (Jeju Island) as part of an ongoing initiative of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching, and Service at Georgetown University. She interviewed members of the Sogang community, including professors, students, administrators, clergy, and the executive director of Sogang University’s board of trustees. Dana also interviewed Gangjeong Village protestors and Sewol Ferry activists as part of her investigation into how members of the Korean community respond to social injustices.
