Read Event Description

Event Date

December 13th 12:00pm - 12:00am EST

Event Description

KEI is now seeking proposals for papers to be released in 2020 on original subjects of current interest to serious Korea watchers. Proposal topics should correspond with the interests and expertise of the author, and the description should demonstrate confidence that they would make good additions to this well-rounded series. KEI is interested in papers concerning South Korean politics and economics, South Korea’s international economic and international security relations, and innovative ideas on North Korea. Topics of particular interest this year include, but are not limited to:

Authors of papers selected by KEI for the KEI Academic Paper Series will receive an honorarium of $1,500 upon completion of the editorial process and receipt of a short summary of the key insights of the paper. KEI will arrange a mutually convenient date for each author to participate in an ON-THE-RECORD public discussion of his/her selected paper at KEI conference facilities in Washington, DC with an interested audience—Korea analysts, government officials, and journalists. KEI strongly prefers the event coincide with the release of the author’s completed paper. KEI will provide travel and accommodation expenses for the discussion program.

Papers will need to be approximately 4,000–5,000 words in length. KEI will edit, publish, and distribute finished papers as KEI Academic Papers to government officials, think tank experts, and scholars around the United States and the world. Individual papers will be published online to coincide with the author’s presentation date. KEI will also collate papers to become chapters in Volume 14 of On Korea, which will be published in print in the beginning of 2021.

KEI will be accepting proposals until December 13, 2019. KEI will have all decisions made on papers by January 17, 2020. Authors of accepted proposals will be separately notified of the required submission dates.
