The goal of this thesis is to identify the causes of increasing anti-Americanism in South Korea. To accomplish this, three areas will be researched. First, the transformation from an authoritarian regime to a democratic government in the 1990s has provided previously unheard of democratic freedom in South Korean society. Second, the perception of inequality in the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) and the civilian crimes committed by U.S. military personnel, since the Korean War have fueled anti-American sentiments. Lastly, the increase in anti-Americanism throughout the world since the U.S. invasion of Iraq and the declaration of North Korea as one of the "Axis of Evil" by the United States have influenced anti-Americanism in South Korea. This thesis will evaluate the role of these three independent variables in the increasing anti- Americanism in South Korea.
