Crisis of South Korean Politics and Prospects for Foreign Policy
March 14, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
South 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.
