Communication Law in Korea: A Topic for Global Research

Kyu Ho Youm, Yoonmo SANG, Ahran Park

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

South Korea is no longer "the impossible country"; rather it is a political democracy and economic powerhouse globally. And due to the enhanced global status of Korea, Korean communication law has become more relevant internationally. Once upon a time, this was not the case. In the mid-1980s, in rejecting a paper about Korean media law, a research chair of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) asserted that AEJMC members would not be interested in Korean law.
