[DM] “On migration and population in reunification-era Korea”

I’ve a post up at Demography Matters taking a look at post-reunification population trends in a reunified Korea. Projections which assume that the North’s share of the Korean population will remain stable, or that its numbers will actually grow, are spectacularly unrealistic. One of the main problems facing a reunifying Korea will be in controlling the North-to-South flow such that the South isn’t overwhelmed by migrants and the North isn’t so denuded of people that it won’t begin to catch up.
