In the run up to the 2022 presidential election, the IKSU Annual International Conference will discuss how South Korea’s politics and international relations have evolved since the founding of the first Republic in 1948. The international relations of South Korea tend to heavily depend on each presidency, especially with regard to North Korea and relations with surrounding countries. In this sense, this conference will explore the past, present and future of South Korean politics and the international relations from a number of perspectives. After the conference, we will publish an edited volume based on the submitted papers. Papers from various disciplines are invited. Early career researchers and PhD candidates are also encouraged, along with academics at all stages of their career in a relevant field.

We plan to hold the first day of the conference at the main campus of the University of Central Lancashire, which is located in the city of Preston in the north of England, and the second day of the event at the Samlesbury Hall, a stunning 14th century manor house and gardens in Lancashire.
