Trends in South Korea’s Domestic Politics and Democracy 2.0
The Republic of Korea (ROK) is undergoing political turmoil in the wake of President Park’s corruption scandal. With the possibility of an early presidential election following President Park’s impeachment last December, many president hopefuls are already in full campaign mode that the Constitution Court will approve the National Assembly’s decision to impeach her, and that the nation will soon enter a presidential election cycle. This event is a follow-up to The Sejong Society’s event last April, “Trends in South Korea’s Domestic Politics and Democracy,” which the organization hosted immediately after the ROK’s 2016 general election.
This event will feature:
- Scott Snyder, Senior Fellow for Korea Studies and Director of the Program on U.S.-Korea Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
- Eunjung Lim, Lecturer of Korea Studies at Johns Hopkins SAIS
This event is free and open to the public and press.
Bookings are closed for this event.
