Abstract: A century ago, terrorism was most often grounded in secular ideology -- anarchism, communism, nationalism or the like. And, the tactic of choice was the assassination of a highly visible political leader. In recent years the world has witnessed the emergence of a unique and innovative form of political violence. In stark contrast to the older form, scholars have identified a ?new terrorism? grounded largely in non-secular ideology; more specifically, an ideology of sacred proportions that traces its roots to traditional culture and fundamental religious beliefs rather than secular ideas.This ?new terrorism? differs in both ideology and scope, when compared to politically violent movements of a century ago. Al-Qaeda exemplifies this new paradigm largely on the basis of its millenarian character. This paper asserts that al-Qaeda?s legitimacy among radical Islamists rests on four distinct characteristics that, taken together, form a model of the ?new terrorism:? (1) the belief in an idealized future, (2) perceptions of a serious and pervasive threat ? one so dangerous that it imperils the very survival of the community, (3) the availability of a potential deliverer or savior, and (4) a search for community renewal or revitalization. Such a model provides a framework for the analysis.

Abstract: This paper reveals the influence of Saint Augustine’s thought on the political theory of Hannah Arendt. I argue that Arendt’s articulation of natality with its foundational role for public speech and action has its origins in the work of Augustine.

3. KIM, EUNGSOO. "The Rebirth of a Welfare Regime in Korea after Democratization and the Economic Crisis: the Challenge of Systemic Vulnerability" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p361046_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: In spite of dramatic welfare expansion occurring right after the economic crisis, the Korean welfare regime still remained in its formative stage, lagging in its development even compared to member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation Development (OECD) with poorly designed welfare systems. This paper aims to introduce and assess a new political explanation for the limitation of social policy development in South Korea after 1997. Admitting the potential of the competing theoretical perspectives, this paper holds that the major difficulty of the Korean social policy development stems from the political decisions of ruling elites who faced “systemic vulnerability,” which is political challenges of delivering side payments to restive popular sectors under conditions of extreme geopolitical insecurity and severe resource constraints. Based on the idea of path dependency, this paper suggests that the concept of systemic vulnerability is a key variable to trace the development of various social policies in Korea and their limitations after increasing democratic competition and the economic crisis.

Abstract: From the election of Margaret Thatcher until 2008, privatizations have occurred in both the Western world and developing countries. For ideological as well as financial reasons, governments privatized their public enterprises. Others were "convinced" to do so by international institutions. In the first six months of 2008, the Privatization Barometer observed that for the first time, the rate of privatization in Europe was slowing down. And then later in 2008, confronted with the necessity to salvage their financial institutions, many governments did what the Swedish government did in the 1990s, they decided to nationalize banks and insurance companies that were in trouble. This paper wants to explore how these nationalisations could be compared and differ from the nationalisations that followed World War II. Are the newly created public enterprises a temporary phenomenon as in Sweden? Will governments, in order to avoid future crises, retain their newly created public enterprises? Can these former private banks be used as policy instruments to manage the current recession? Is it possible to develop a policy instrument culture in organisations that have been for long periods private companies? Based on first a documentary analysis and interviews with government officials who had to work on the nationalisations in Europe, this paper attempts to answer these questions.

"Pension Privatization in Crisis: Death or Rebirth of a Global Policy Trend?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the SASE Annual Conference, Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain, Madrid, Spain, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p504664_index.html>

Abstract: From 1981 to 2007, more than thirty countries worldwide fully or partially replaced their pre-existing pay-as-you-go pension systems with ones based on individual, private savings accounts in a process often labelled “pension privatization.” After the global financial crisis, this trend was put on hold for economic, ideational, and institutional reasons, despite a rise in critical indebtedness that has facilitated pension privatization in the past. Is the global trend towards pension privatization dead or in the process of being reborn, perhaps in somewhat different form? Several recent trends point to rebirth as policy-makers scale back public and private pension systems, attend to minimum pensions, and “nudge” rather than mandate people to save for retirement
