Publications » Korea Compass

Korea Compass traces the impacts of Korea’s engagements around the world, particularly on international development. The Korea Compass series will map out Korea’s foreign policy interests and priorities in Africa, Latin America, Southeast Asia, India, and the Middle East. The series will also examine Korea’s global leadership and its impact on U.S.-ROK relations. In an era when China’s rise is of concern in Asia and the U.S., Korea’s hanging role in the world will shed new light on the U.S.-ROK alliance and U.S. presence in Asia.
