By the end of the 1990s, the South Korean Government virtually extended citizenship rights to overseas co-ethnics and recently, enfranchised its overseas nationals they can participate in national elections. Nation-states such as South Korea, in the face of a rapidly aging population, dwindling fertility rates, and continued emigration of middle-class families, do not seem to have a choice but to go ‘de-territorial’ and promote long-distance nationalism among its co-ethnics overseas.
Drinks and snacks to follow.
