Korea Economic Institute of America Presents:

Addressing Continuity in South Korean Foreign Policy

Read Event Description

Event Date

April 20th 12:00pm - 12:00am EST

Event Description

The upcoming presidential election in Korea on May 9th will place many key issues under the microscope. One meriting serious consideration that has featured less prominently in the political discourse is continuity in foreign policy. Korean policy-making processes empower each president to make their own mark on Korea’s foreign outreach, and simultaneously make it difficult to maintain initiatives from the previous administration. Constitutional reform is one of several changes that could help lessen the impact of leadership transitions on international priorities.
