CSU professors heading to Washington

Posted: Updated:
Three Columbus State University professors will be special guests in Washington, D.C. next week. They will be the featured participants in a panel discussion on North Korea-South Korea unification.

The February 13 panel discussion at the Korea Economic Institute, will feature Korea expert Tom Dolan, chair of CSU’s Department of Political Science and Public Administration,  Kyle Christensen, an assistant professor in the department and director of CSU’s Social Research Center, and Kimberly Gill, also an assistant professor there and director of CSU’s Master of Public Administration program. Their presentation and discussion will focus on “South Korean Attitudes Toward the U.S. Rebalance to Asia and Korean Unification.”  The event will be live-streamed on the KEI website (keia.org) and may viewed online afterward.

Dolan visited South Korea in 2012 to conduct public opinion research in Seoul, Incheon and Busan regarding unification. Because the surveys were written in Korean, translating and sorting the data took more time than usual.  

“It was focused on attitudes South Koreans have on unification,” Dolan said. “About what they think the obstacles to unification are and particularly seeing if people of different ages have different opinions on it.”
