The present paper focuses on the development of feminist thought and women's movement in Korea in the 20th century. The author aims to reveal the major constraints of women's empowerment in Korea in the process of creating a modern nation-state based on democracy, pluralism and the rule of law.
The paper looks at the question of relationship between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Korea. Notwithstanding the explicitly and commonly shared aim of establishing and maintaining peace on the Korean Peninsula and in the broader North-East Asia region, Russian and Korean public perceptions of each other’s foreign policies result remarkably altered. As results of the recent joint research project (2016) by the Russian Public Opinion Research Center (WCIOM) and the Hankuk University demonstrate, over 40 % of Koreans think that Russia would take the DPRK side in case of a military conflict on the peninsula, while almost 60% of the Russian public think that Russia will act as a neutral mediator to resolve the conflict. Both the Russian and the Korean public admit that bilateral relations are strongly conditioned by the remaining stereotypes and policy fluctuations.
