Reproducing mothering in East Asia: a qualitative study of Japanese and South Korean mothers.

My name is Malgorzata Karolina Sidz and I am a student at the University of Turku. I am just finishing my MA Thesis in "Reproduction of mothering in East Asia: a qualitative study of Japanese and South Korean mothers" and I am to graduate later this year. Right now I am working on a project about Koryo Saram - the Korean diaspora in the post-soviet countries. Currently I continue studying, as well as working as a journalist and a writer.

 


 

 

Petra Arki, MA, University of Turku.

Internationalization of the "comfort women" movement.

My name is Petra and I am a master's student in the University of Turku, Finland.

In my thesis I am studying how the' comfort women' issue has been addressed in the United Nations. My primary data consists of documents from the United Nations Human Rights Bodies and documents that have been submitted to the UN by South Korean NGOs. I have also conducted an interview with a representative of The Korean Council for Justice and Remembrance for the Issues of Military Sexual Slavery by Japan. I am planning on using the interview as a supportive data. I am interested in how the issue has been framed in the UN and has the issue followed a similar framing in the UN as within the Korean 'comfort women' movement.
