Civil Society on the Move

Transition and Transfer in Germany and South Korea


Edited By Eun-Jeung Lee and Hannes B. Mosler

Following the transformation of the Soviet-controlled Eastern European system, there has been a renewal of discourses on civil society. The collection of essays discusses this complicated and controversial concept and explores the possibility of new approaches for the study of Korean civil society and democracy. Combining interdisciplinary and transregional research, it contributes directly to the field of democracy after democratization and sheds light on concepts of civil society, developments of various civil society organizations and student movements in Germany, Korea, and Eastern Europe.

Hannes B. Mosler is Assistant Professor at the Graduate School of East Asian Studies at Freie Universität Berlin. His major research interests are political parties, political systems, constitutional law, and policy decision processes in Korea.
