It was when Korea was about to be divided into South and North, and a separated rightist regime was being established in South Korea supported by the US Army Military Government. The incident started with a mass uprising led by domestic communist groups protesting against the general election in South Korea. However, tens of thousand innocent people in Jeju were subsequently killed by the police or military forces. Although the South Korean government has been reluctant to acknowledge the issue for decades, the victims are now being given remedies. The most dramatic change was the official apology from the government given by the current president Roh Moo-Hyun last December, 2003 in Jeju. This article focuses on the issue of transitional justice, defined as "the principles and mechanisms which can guarantee justice during a transition from a authoritarian regime to democratic rule." Dealing with the past raises a hard question of transitional justice: a question of choice between to "forgive and forget" and to "prosecute and punish." The dialectics between truth and reconciliation comes into play at this stage. In this work I explore the current stage of Korean transitional justice and some key issues that recur whenever they deal with past atrocities.

(Re)forming Child Custody Law in Canada, 1998-2003 Collaborators/ Research Team (if any): Co-Investigator Dr. Dorothy Chunn (SFU Criminology) Funding Source: SSHRC Standard Research Grant Research Problem: Which factors, or combinations of factors, have carried the greater weight in the recent process of reforming Canadian laws related to children whose parents are divorcing or separating? Factors considered include (a) legislative changes to child support law; (b) lobbying by women’s groups for greater attention to gendered caregiving patterns in heterosexual families and to the consequences of spousal abuse in child custody law; (c) lobbying by fathers’ rights groups for the introduction of legal presumptions in favour of joint custody or shared parenting; (d) media attention to the so-called ‘gender wars’ over children and, in particular, to the arguments of fathers’ rights advocates; (e) law reform developments in other countries, notably England, Australia, and some states of the United States; and (f) social science studies of the consequences of divorce for children. In addition to tracking the influences on law reform and the results of the law reform process, it will be possible to assess to what extent any imbalance between the impact of the voices of women’s groups and men’s groups is manifested in the law reform process. The project also will determine and analyze the reactions of women’s and men’s groups to the reforms and the process. Research Methods: (1) documentary analysis of governmental committee submissions, hearings and reports, governmental responses, and parliamentary debates; (2) quantitative and qualitative media analyses of how issues related to parenting and child custody and access law have been (re)presented over time in English-language, Canadian newspapers (e.g. quality, popular) from three cities (Vancouver, Ottawa, Toronto); and (3) semi-structured interviews of one to one and a half hours with representative members of fathers’ rights advocates and women’s rights advocates, mainly in British Columbia and Ontario. Deliverables and projected completion dates: Conference papers/presentations (ongoing); refereed articles (ongoing), a book (2005). Slide18:  Christine Boyle LL.B.

Queens University Belfast 1971; LL.M. Queens University Kingston "The Drawing of Inferences in Fact Determination" Research Problem: The process of fact determination involves the drawing of inferences. This process, which affects both determinations of relevance and probative value in fact finding contexts, must be fair and egalitarian. Yet it is relatively unexamined in Canadian jurisprudence. For instance, is poverty relevant to motive to commit profit-oriented crime? Is knowledge of the privilege against self-incrimination relevant to the credibility of an accused who testified in a previous case? What may be inferred from the silence of suspects? Is the fact that a sexual assault complainant did not write that she was sexually assaulted in her diary relevant to credibility? How should fact finders deal with information from which conflicting inferences may be drawn? This project examines such issues with a view to providing guidance on a fair and egalitarian inference-drawing process for fact finders. Slide20:  Kim Brooks B.A. (English/Economics) (U of T); LL.B.

(U.B.C.); LL.M. (Osgoode) Globalization and the Corporate Tax: Competition, Coordination or Harmonization One of the most urgent questions being debated among legal and other scholars in many areas of law and political economy over the past decade is whether nation states will be able to maintain the capacity to impose regulatory frameworks on the economic lives of their citizens in the face of the pressures created by “globalization”. Scholars have raised concerns that left unchecked, globalization will lead to a “race to the bottom.” The predicted result is that the allocation and distribution of economic resources will be determined only by the free play of market forces. In this project I explore whether corporate taxes are diminishing in the face of increased globalization. Corporate taxes present an ideal topic for an empirical look at the effects of globalization, given that in many ways the corporate tax is the regulatory framework most exposed to the forces of globalization. The corollary to the empirical question, of course, assuming that I discover some decline in corporate taxes, is an analysis of whether or not governments might be justified in taking steps to counter-act the effects of globalization, and if they are justified in intervening, what kinds of steps might be advisable. Presumably whatever conclusions I draw from this research might be of interest to corporate tax lawyers and scholars, but I also hope that the analysis has a broader significance. By exploring how the forces of globalization are affecting the regulatory framework inherent in the corporate tax, I plan to draw some more general conclusions about the survival of national sovereignty.

(U.Vic); Ph.D. (philosophy) (University of California, Santa Barbara) Looking for a Meeting Place: Indigenous Legal Traditions in Canada’s Constitutional Structure Collaborator(s): This project is part of a larger research endeavour funded by the Law Commission of Canada and the Indigenous Bar Association Funding Source: Law Commission of Canada and the Indigenous Bar Association Research Problem: The work takes place under the supposition that it might be possible to accommodate Indigenous legal traditions within Canada’s current constitutional and legal framework, with the bulk of the work being an investigation into how this might play out. The task is to work from the two ends of the problem inward, from the direction of Indigenous legal traditions toward a situation in which they are re-infused into the day-to-day lives of contemporary Aboriginal nations, and from a conceptualization of the current constitutional landscape to a situation within which Indigenous legal traditions are living elements of this landscape. The end result of this investigation will be some sense of whether in working from these two directions toward one another a common ground may be reached – that is, whether the original supposition is valid. Research Methodology: The research will be primarily of an analytic nature, but based on an extensive literature review of both (a) other analyses that have looked at issues wrapped up in this sort of problem, and (b) empirical research that has looked into the present state of Indigenous legal traditions in Aboriginal nations across Canada. It will be necessary to get a sense of the extent to which Indigenous legal traditions already operate within Aboriginal nations across Canada, just as it will be necessary to canvass the work that others have put into thinking about how Indigenous legal traditions could come to animate the lives of Aboriginal peoples.

(Toronto) Project Title: “A Duty to Warn: Bad Assets and Fiduciary Duty” Funding Source(s): Faculty of Law Research Grant (application submitted) Research Problem: The project will address whether or not the present abysmal performance of pension plans can justify a claim of breach of fiduciary duty by plan administrators with respect to their choice of equities as a major investment of the pension funds. Scholars have recognized a serious mis-match between pension plan liabilities and equities as assets, the question is why pension plan administrators continued to increase the proportion of equities in their plan’s portfolio throughout the 1990’s. If one plausible explanation for doing so involves a conflict of interest, then the issue of a potential breach of fiduciary duty becomes more immediate. Research Method: Legal research into the developing law concerning the content and scope of fiduciary duty in order to analyse the impact of these developments on the problem. It will also require research into economic and legal literature concerning pension liabilities and asset mixes in order to determine the knowledge available on this issue for the plan administrators and their professional advisors. Comparative law research will also be conducted on similar issues under U.S. law. Deliverables and projected completion dates: A scholarly paper of publishable quality that will be of interest to scholars, employers, employees, retired plan members and policy makers in the pension law field.

Underlying the initiatives in inclusive post-secondary education are principles from two sources: first, changing ideas about the mandate of post-secondary institutions and second, the philosophy of the community living movement. Universities are now committed to principles of lifelong education and diversity in its population. The community living movement advocates that people with developmental disabilities be valued members of all communities, including the most prestigious. Research Method: This project has two parts: a legal analysis and an empirical analysis. In order to determine the extent of any legal entitlement, the project will analyze all relevant international instruments, constitutional provisions, statutory material and judicial decisions to assess the right of persons with developmental disabilities to inclusive post-secondary education. At an empirical level the project will use three case studies in Canada in Alberta, Prince Edward Island and British Columbia. This portion of the study will look at the evolution , implementation and outcomes of these initiatives. Slide44:  Richard Kyle Paisley B.Sc., M.Sc., J.D., LL.M. Director, Dr. Andrew R.

Though the idea of nation, central to the concept of law, has suffused the history of “the west” and its colonies for four hundred years, it is at once deeply political, raced, gendered and spaced. Nation is at once as a positive, encompassing symbol of solidarity transcending the fractiousness of smaller groups, but also as a force for exclusion, xenophobia, and aggression.
