On April 18-19 Asia Research Centre is hosting a conference on Korea titled "Dynamic Korea in a Transforming Asia: Opportunities and Challenges for South Korean Development".
The objective of the conference is to capture a dynamic Korea in the wider Asian context. To do this, we propose a concept of ‘regional interaction and integration’ (RII). Interaction refers to the ongoing, dynamic relationships between Korea and the rest of Asia. The more intense the interaction, the greater is the degree of integration between the two parties.
The task of this conference is to unravel and explain the growing interactions between Korea and the principal countries in Asia, either at a bilateral level or at a multilateral, regional level. Here Asia includes more narrowly the major economies of East Asia, South East Asia and South Asia. For greater manageability, we exclude West Asia and Oceania, acknowledging that they are important to South Korea.
We confine interaction and integration mainly to three broad areas. These are (1) region-based, geopolitical relationships, (2) economic, business and technological engagements with Asia, and (3) Korea’s responses to emergent challenges and opportunities associated with Korea’s ongoing engagement with the region.
