Korea Economic Institute of America Presents:

The Republic of Korea and the Middle East

Read Event Description

Event Date

August 4th 12:00pm - 12:00am EST

Event Description

Until the 1960’s, the Middle East was not of much importance to South Korea. However, South Korea‚Äôs economic involvement in the region increased throughout the years, comprised of significant investment projects and later, in the 1990’s, the emergence of South Korean military involvement as well. With a recent and significant UAE-ROK nuclear facility deal, the presence of ROK troops in the region, and the continuing parallels drawn between Iran and North Korea, Dr. Levkowitz’ paper breaks down the extent of South Korean influence in the Middle East and offers a glimpse of an underexplored cross-regional relationship. Please join us on August 4th for a lunchtime presentation by Dr. Levkowitz followed by an open discussion in which KEI welcomes your participation.
