"South Korea and China: 10 Years Since the Normalization" is the topic of a talk to be presented at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 13, in 2 Robertson Hall.
Chung Jae Ho, associate professor of international relations at Seoul National University, will present the talk, which is part of a new Center of International Studies lecture series on "Korea and the Great Powers." The series was inaugurated this spring as part of a larger scholarly initiative focusing on East Asia.
Chung, who also is a 2002-03 fellow at the Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution, will address the extraordinary speed of political reconciliation and economic integration between South Korea and China. He will examine the strength of the ties between the two countries and how it is being tested in the current nuclear crisis with North Korea.
