Conference on " Korea and Global Migration," December, 11 2004 Thanks to a generous grant from the Korea Research Foundation and the co-sponsorship from the Korean Studies Institute at USC, we held a successful conference on an issue of increasing importance in South Korea, Asia, and the rest of world: transnational migration/immigration. The conference was designed to gauge the ways in which evolving and shifting patterns of global migration, in conjunction with other globalizing forces, are likely to impact the development of national identities; policy arrangements; and political, legal and social structures in South Korea. Professor Timothy Lim, the conference's host and organizer, is currently working on an edited volume based on the conference papers. Conference papers are available online.
