Project
Focusing on the roles played by each Southeast Asian state as well as ASEAN as a regional organization, this project aims to unpack the underlying political, economic, and security connections between South Korea (also hereafter ROK) and Southeast Asia. ASEAN and Korea have already enjoyed robust economic and socio-cultural exchanges over the years. With the summit diplomacy driving the peace process on the Korean Peninsula, Southeast Asia is caught in the juncture of its special relations with North Korea while its economic potential has become ever more important for ROK as a result of strategic uncertainty permeating from the great power geopolitical competition. Following this trajectory, enhancing Korea-ASEAN connectivity and confidence-building become ever more significant for ROK’s long-term strategy for peace and prosperity.
Project
Focusing on the roles played by each Southeast Asian state as well as ASEAN as a regional organisation, this project aims to unpack the underlying political, economic, and security connections between North Korea (also hereafter DPRK) and Southeast Asia. For years, Southeast Asia has served as one of the crucial (and few) outlets to the world for North Korea, yet the region has not been a focal point in South Korea’s main North Korea strategy. Thus, this project also aims to provide policy recommendations to South Korea by highlighting the strategic importance of Southeast Asia and ASEAN in managing North Korean threats.
