Ahn Jung-Geun’s on Peace in East Asia a Way to Resolve Northeast Asian Nations’ Historical Conflicts

Yoo Song Lee
Abstract—A century has passed since the death of Korea’s Hero, Ahn Jung Geun. There are several organizations, institutions founded so as to not only cherish the deceased man but also reevaluate his works. Especially his ideas about East Asian peace which are evident in his writing On Peace in East Asia are hotly debated among scholars. This author also examines Ahn’s On Peace in East Asia as well, but with different approach. Rather than assessing the work in the context of economy or politics, the author tried to apply Ahn’s thoughts in a historical context. Having realized that the ongoing historical conflicts between Northeast Asia nations, Korea, China, and Japan result in serious diplomatic disputes, the author sought ways to adapt the fundamental concepts of On Peace in East Asia to the resolution of these conflicts. The contents of the paper include the basic ideas of On Peace in East Asia, significant historical conflicts taking place in Northeast Asia, and the possible solutions to resolve the problems.
