Since its partition in the 1950s, the Korean peninsula has directly or indirectly shaped the broader security relations between regional powerhouses, and the recent test of a nuclear weapon by the North Korean regime has heightened tensions across the world. This study draws upon contributions from a diverse array of experts who offer their perspectives on the region's complex network of alliances and hostilities. The authors discuss the future of the region, the potential for military conflict and a new arms race, and the ways to maintain peace and stability.

Since its partition in the 1950s, the Korean peninsula has directly or indirectly shaped the broader security relations between regional powerhouses, while the recent test of a nuclear weapon by the North Korean regime has heightened tensions across the world. Japan, feeling increasingly threatened by the North Korean regime and China's extravagant military expenditures, has begun questioning Article IX in its Constitution that renounces war and the maintenance of armed forces. Its neighbors, still haunted by Japanese atrocities during World War II, are fearful of a new nuclear arms race in the region. The United States, for its part, has adopted unprecedented hard-line policies in response to 9/11, going so far as to condemn North Korea as part of an axis of evil. It has strengthened its alliance with Japan and alienated its long-time strategic partner South Korea. Add to this the economic entanglements of each of these countries both with each other and with the rest of the world, and the regional security issues become even more paramount.

This study makes sense of these complex alliances and frictions and offers an array of perspectives on the future of the region, the potential for military conflict and a new arms race, and the ways to maintain peace and stability. Topics include big power rivalries, South Korea's sunshine policy, anti-Americanism, and emerging nationalisms.

Social security systems are experiencing a profound change all over Europe, due to internal as well as to external reasons: changes in society, in the labour markets and globalisation. The normative dimension of these changes is often overlooked. This book takes the first step in filling the gap, concentrating on security as a general principle of European social security law (GPSoc), explaining what this principle means and how it works. It reflects the way in which legal comparison can be used to gain a better understanding of social security law. It brings together detailed reports from 14 European countries. And it analyses the effects of security on legislative, as well as on administrative, action.

By so doing, it not only provides detailed information about the institutions and the instruments through which social security works in practice, but also offers a better understanding of its normative basis. This basis is fundamental: it explains the role which social security plays in modern societies, since it is, after all, a core element of the nation state which holds these societies together in times in which they can no longer be based on religion or social class.

The authors are well-known, experienced specialists in social security law. Ulrich Becker is the director of the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Social Law in Munich and Professor at the Ludwigs-Maximilians-University in Munich; Danny Pieters is Secretary-General of the European Institute of Social Security and Chair of Social Security Law at the University of Leuven; Friso Ross is Professor of Law, Faculty of Social Work, at the Erfurt University of Applied Sciences; Paul Schoukens is Professor of Social Security Law at the University of Leuven.
