About this event

On May 10, Yoon Suk-yeol became South Korea's new president. Yoon has proposed that South Korea step up to become a "global pivotal state," and he has said that he intends to break with his predecessor's foreign policy on key issues such as China, North Korea, and the Quad. Join GMF to discuss the future of South Korean foreign policy under the Yoon administration with Young Ho Kim (Korea National Defense University), Scott Snyder (Council on Foreign Relations), Jung-Yeop Woo (Sejong Institute), and Bonnie Glaser (The German Marshall Fund of the United States). The discussion will address topics such as Seoul's policy toward the Indo-Pacific, its approach toward China and North Korea, the potential for engagement between South Korea and Quad countries, and the possible impacts of the war in Ukraine.

The GMF Asia Program's new policy paper on expanding engagement among South Korea and Quad countries in the Indo-Pacific will be released soon. Register now for the event and you will be notified when it becomes available.
