There have been three uprisings to change governments in South Korea since 1945. Although the three have a lot of commons, there are critical differences between the years before 2000 and after 2000. Professor Park will examine the commonality and distinction through comparison of uprisings in 1960, 1987, and 2016-2017, which have brought various results. The analysis would be not only from the viewpoint of civil society, but also from the conservative group.
