What was the legal process behind the establishment of colonialism as Japan's prime strategy towards Korea since the late 19th century? By addressing such questions, it is not only possible to address how Japanese colonialism in Korea was born, but also address how the process behind the making of colonialism as a judicial and legal project was illegal from its origination. As East Asia grapples with a new generation of power politics, these sober reflects lend an important historical context to the struggles of the present. Holding a PhD from the University of Chicago, Kyu-Hyun Jo was a Research Associate at the Northeast Asian History Foundation in Korea from 2020 to 2021 and is currently a lecturer in Political Science at Yonsei University, where he teaches Korea and East Asian international relations and history
