The Washington Center Internship Program을 통해 Voice of America 에서 인턴기자로 있는 12학번  최재형 학생의 기사입니다. 북한의 핵 위협에 대한 미국 대학생들의 생각은 일반 미국인들과는 크게 다른 것으로 나타났습니다. 미국에 큰 위협이 아니라는 겁니다. 대학생들은 또 북한을 생각할 때 연상되는 단어로 인권과 위협, 가난을 꼽았습니다. 최재형 인턴기자가 취재했습니다. `VOA’는 최근 대학에서 정치학을 전공하면서 워싱턴의 미국 연방정부와 비정부기구 등에서 인턴으로 근무하는 학생 40 명을 대상으로 북한에 대한 인식과 견해를 묻는 설문조사를 실시했습니다. 이 설문조사에서 응답자의 77%는 북한의 핵 위협을 그렇게 심각하게 받아들이지 않는다고 밝혔습니다. 북한의 핵 계획이 미국의 안보에 미약한 위협 (60%) 이거나 전혀 위협이 되지 않는다 (17.5%) 는 겁니다. 워싱턴의 캐나다대사관에서 인턴으로 근무하는 디에고 로페즈 씨입니다. [녹취: 디에고] “North Korea is a minor threat to the U.S. because they have the capability to attack us and their rhetoric has been very threatening but they are not in a position to attack us because it would be self-destructive for them.” 로페즈 씨는 북한이 미국을 공격할 능력을 갖추고 있고 지속적으로 미국을 위협하고 있지만 미국에 대한 공격은 정권의 파괴를 자초하는 일이기 때문에 실행하지 못할 것이란 설명입니다. 북 핵 위협에 대한 이런 태도는 미국인 절반 이상이 북한 핵 계획을 중대한 위협으로 여기고 있는 것으로 나타난 시카고 국제문제협의회 (CCGA)의 최근 여론조사 결과와는 대비되는 것입니다. 이는 설문조사에 응한 대학생 절반 가량이 `북한이 핵을 실제로 사용할 의지가 없다고 생각한다’ (45%)고 대답한 것과 관계가 있는 것으로 보입니다. 학생들은 그러나 63%가 북한을 실질적인 핵 보유국으로 여긴다고 답했고, 47%는 핵탄두가 장착된 북한의 대륙간탄도미사일이 미국 영토에 도달할 능력이 있는 것으로 생각한다고 말했습니다. 이들은 또 절대 다수인 83%가 북한 핵이 한반도 안보에 큰 위협이라고 밝혔습니다. 그러면서 동맹국은 한국을 방어하기 위한 미군의 한국 주둔에 찬성했습니다. 미 하원 테리 세웰 의원실에서 인턴으로 근무하는 카를로스 미카메스 씨의 말입니다. [녹취: 미카메스] “South Korea is a valuable ally and they cannot defend themselves efficiently against the irrational threat that is currently coming from North Korea. So therefore we should just keep U.S. troops in Korea for now.” 한국은 소중한 동맹국이며 북한의 비이성적인 위협에 맞서 독자적으로는 효과적으로 대응할 수 없기 때문에 주한미군 주둔에 찬성한다는 겁니다. 학생들은 84%가 한반도 유사시 주한미군의 개입에 찬성하는 것으로 조사됐고, 55%의 응답자들은 미군의 고고도 미사일 방어체계(THAAD)의 한반도 배치에 찬성했습니다. 북 핵 문제 해결을 위한 방안으로 학생들은 제재 보다 협상을 선호했습니다. 현재 진행 중인 대북 제재를 선호한다는 응답은 20%, 협상을 선호한다는 응답은 60%에 달했습니다. 나머지는 선박 검색 (12%)과 제한적 타격 (5%), 북한 침공 (2%)을 주장했습니다. 이밖에 북한을 생각할 때 가장 먼저 연상되는 단어로 인권, 위협, 가난을 꼽았습니다. 북한을 방문할 의사가 있는지에 대한 질문에는 응답자의 절반이 북한이 위험하기 때문에 가지 않겠다고 밝혔습니다. 나머지 절반은 그러나 안전만 보장된다면 북한의 독특한 정치와 문화를 직접 체험할 수 있는 흥미로운 경험이 될 것 같다며 방문 의사를 밝혔습니다. 한편 이번 조사에서 학생들은 미국에 가장 큰 위협이 되는 적국으로 러시아 (22%)를 꼽았습니다. 북한은 중국, 이란과 함께 공동 2위 (15%) 를 기록했습니다. 미국의 안보에 가장 큰 위협으로는 이슬람 수니파 무장조직 ISIL을 꼽았고, 북 핵 문제는 중국의 부상과 기후변화에 이어 4위였습니다.

The Washington Center (TWC) Internship at Washington D.C.<Internship at Urban Institute>I had several interviews through Skype before I left Korea to US. Among them, the Urban Institute, a policy research center based in DC was the place that I can learn what I want to learn. It’s really important to go there and do your internship in the specific area you want. For me, I want to work in financial field in the future so I’ve learned statistical program. The Urban Institute was the company which mainly uses the program and the interviewer told me that they can give me the opportunity to deal with the real data there. The Urban Institute was a big research company located near the White house. Since my supervisor and co-workers already recognized the TWC program so they were highly willing to teach me professional skills and gave me the opportunity to join their projects in the company. I was able to join a really big study launched by US Housing Department and also a project with American Redcross. What’s important is that in every single project, I was able to learn how to use the program and was able to communicate with coworkers. You can learn how to be professional at work and learn the specific skills that you want to learn. <Academic Seminar>It was a really great opportunity for me to be in class with a lot of foreign students. I registered “Global trade” class and this gave me the opportunity to give a presentation in front of other students whose major are international business. It was really amazing that I can share my knowledge with them and learn from their thoughts who studied the same major in their own countries. Almost every other class that my friends attended was interactive between students and professor and this will give you the courage to make a presentation and new perspective of your major. <Life in DC>Almost every week, there are various seminars and conferences open for the public. I attended a lot of them from World Bank, IMF, and also CSIS. Every single topic that was debated in those seminars and conferences, in DC is important current issue that you might be able to hear only from the news if you are not in DC. (ex. TPP, AIIB, North Korea etc) I was able to make a lot of friends from all over the world. Most of the students in TWC are open-minded enjoy being friends with others and hanging out. I went for a trip with them and they are unforgettable experience.

The Short-term Intensive Program on Japan at OSIPP 2016The six days I have spent in Osaka was an enriching experience for both the mind and heart. Although I had visited parts of Japan prior to this program, all the visits were accompanied by my parents, involving a lot of family bonding instead of the robust learning and travelling that had so craved for. To begin with, the program was well organized in educating me and my colleagues on not only political but also cultural history of Japan along with the country’s modern day social problems. Thus, the varying topics that seemed to highlight different aspects of Japan provided foreigners like ourselves a more comprehensive grasp over its identity as a nation. The lectures were well prepared and despite my personal preference for political philosophy and history, more contemporary subjects regarding Japan’s increasing suicide rate and discrimination against the handicapped were all very intriguing. As the program progressed, I even realized that the seemingly different topics were in fact interrelated. For example, professor Haruko SATOH’s lecture on the political system of Japan had to a certain extent helped me in understanding why assimilations plans were set for Japan’s ethnic minorities like the Ainu as professor SAORI MIYAZAKI covered this topic. Lastly, I would like to conclude by saying that the program was an absolute cultural delight in the sense that students were given personal free time to explore Japan as well. Most would acknowledge that learning could take place inside and outside of a classroom. In the case with this program, the participants including myself had the best of both worlds. I sincerely wish that more students could be given the opportunity to partake in a program as meaningful as this. Thank you students, teachers, professor, and lastly KIC!                                                                                       Reported by  JAEYOUNG, YOO                                                                                                                          2016/03/02
