Crisis of South Korean Politics and Prospects for Foreign Policy

March 14, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


15-Most-Well-Funded-Startups-Korea-Feature-ImageSouth Korea is mired in Park Geun Hye’s impeachment and as a result the 2017 presidential race has begun. Meanwhile, South Korea’s foreign policy is in disarray. The Trump Shock has produced an uncertain future for the ROK-U.S. alliance, while inter-Korean relations have hit rock bottom. China-South Korean relations have also soured over the issue of deployment of Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD).

Against this backdrop, this symposium will look into Park’s impeachment process, prospects for the presidential election, and the impacts on South Korea’s foreign policy and inter-Korean relations.


It will be held in the Malamud Conference Room at the Institute of the Americas (directions).

This event is hosted by the Korea-Pacific Program at GPS and the Pacific Century Institute. Co-sponsors include: East Asia Foundation, Kommon Society and Mannam.

The event in its entirety seeks to both explain and explore the Korean political landscape.
