In 2020, the Russian Federation and the Republic of Korea celebrate the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. The dynamic dialogue between the two states promotes economic cooperation, cultural exchange, innovation, and positive changes in international relations. The conference seeks to support diverse research on Russian-Korean relations and encourage scholarly exchange between Korean and Russian researchers, though scholars from all regions are invited to participate.
The first objective of the conference is to contribute to the understanding of Korean-Russian relations in regional and global contexts. The second objective is to encourage wide-ranging discussion of external and internal factors in Korea and Russia’s foreign policies and their responses to regional and global economic challenges and opportunities. By exploring Korean and Russian perspectives on international politics and economics, this conference will provide new theoretical and practical insights into foreign policymaking, global cooperation, and intercultural dialogue.
Conference organizers: National Research University Higher School of Economics (Russian Federation), Kyung Hee University (Republic of Korea), and HSE and Kyung Hee University Double Degree Programme 'Economics and Politics in Asia'.
Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue or an edited volume.
The conference moves to online. Due to the uncertainties and restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to hold the Conference as a virtual, online-only event. For more information please visit the Conference Programme page.
