More on the controversial 'comfort women' paper from @thecrimson
: Legal scholars and historians from S. Korea and the US said Ramseyer’s paper had several flaws in its reasoning and raised questions about the sources he used to back up those arguments. https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2021/2/7/hls-paper-international-controversy/
Harvard Professor of Korean History Carter J. Eckert ’68 wrote in an emailed statement that Ramseyer’s article is “woefully deficient, empirically, historically, and morally.” https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2021/2/7/hls-paper-international-controversy/
Most damning bit perhaps: "Asked why he did not cite any Korean sources in the paper, Ramseyer said he is 'very upfront' about the fact that he does not read Korean."
Statement from Korean students at Harvard Law School: "We firmly believe that a sincere commitment to academic freedom is inseparable from the obligation of academic integrity as part of a genuine search for truth." https://orgs.law.harvard.edu/kahls/statements/
