New Publication from the Lab: Living in Yesterday’s Terror: The Impact of Civil War Violence on the Post-War Election in South Korea

Dernière mise à jour : 17 avr.

We are delighted to share some wonderful news from the Lab! Jae Hyun Park, a dedicated Postcor Lab researcher and PhD candidate at the University of Toronto's Department of Political Science, has recently published a paper titled “Living in Yesterday’s Terror: The Impact of Civil War Violence on the Post-War Election in South Korea,” featured in the esteemed journal of Terrorism and Political Violence. 


Jae’s research investigates the impact of civil war violence on voting behaviour post-war, focusing on South Korea in the aftermath of the Korean War. Jae's publication finds that instances of civil war violence carried out by the South Korean government, the dominant perpetrator, had minimal impact on their vote shares. Conversely, violence perpetrated by the opposition significantly boosted the electoral support for the dominant perpetrator.
