REUNIFICATION: GERMANY AND KOREA Case Assignment
Address the following questions in a three to five page paper:
- What are the main challenges Germany has faced during the reunification process? In particular, think in terms of problems that can be found in any attempt to unify a country or region. Be sure to discuss why these problems can be generalized.
- After reading a little bit on the history of Korea, do you think reunification is possible? Be sure to support your answer with the appropriate resources.
- Given the lessons you learned about German reunification in the last module, what are the most important issues facing efforts towards Korean peninsula reunification?
Refer closely to the material in the background information. Cite your sources carefully.
The cases in POL 201 generally call for a detailed analysis of a particular situation. In addressing case questions, such an analysis requires some historical perspective and a balanced and thorough consideration of challenges facing efforts at unification or, at least, the peaceful resolution of disputes between peoples in the nation being studied. Be sure to do some research on your own and cite all references.
