Challenges of Lee Myung-bak's Administration Conservative Policy on the Anti-American Beef Protests Case
Languages of publication
W 2008 r. konserwatywna administracja Lee Myung-baka musiała zmierzyć się z masowymi protestami. Demonstranci sprzeciwiali się nagłej oraz nieprzemyślanej ich zdaniem decyzji prezydenta dotyczącej zniesienia ograniczeń w imporcie amerykańskiej wołowiny. Masowy ruch społeczny w kraju doprowadził do nieoczekiwanych politycznych reperkusji. Celem artykułu jest ukazanie, jak przebiegały protesty oraz jak czynniki kulturowe, ekonomiczne i narodowe wpływają i determinują kierunki politycznego rozwoju.
In 2008, the Lee Myung-bak's conservative administration encountered mass pro¬tests among South Korean citizens that opposed to decision to abolish the import ban on American beef. These anti-American social protests and its trajectories were determined not only by cultural but economic factors. The purpose of this study is to acquaint with the U.S. Beef Protests in the Korean Peninsula and familiarize the conservative politics of the Lee Myung-bak's regime. This case shows how cultural, national and economic factors emphasize and determine different political reverberations.
