National Identity and Social Resilience in the Case of South Korea

Pál Koudela



The main objective in this study is to interpret personal resilience and its determining factors in a national level. As long as personal resilience depends on good mutual relationships in the family (Black & Lobo, 2008) and other factors—like good self-concept and so forth—national resilience might be a process of adopting capabilities to wider environment with the help of coping “system components”, such as individuals or economic institutions. Good or bad mutuality inside can be described as different socio-economic systems and outside as international relations.
