The Making of a Global Economic Player? Korea in Comparative Perspective



Central European University, Budapest, Hungary, 12-14 June 2014



The steady rise of ‘made in Korea’ and the establishment of global brands, as well as the expansion of development assistance seem to suggest that we are witnessing the making of a Global Economic Player. At the same time at home calls for economic democratization in South Korea are incessant.


The Asia Research Initiative (ARI) and the Department of International Relations and European Studies (IRES) at Central European University (Budapest, Hungary) are pleased to announce the conference ‘The Making of a Global Economic Player? Korea in Comparative Perspective’. The event is hosted by Central European University (CEU) in Budapest and will take place on 12-14 June 2014.


The event is supported by Korea Foundation and is part of the KF Global E-school in Eurasia, a project aimed at developing a multi-university and multi-platform online real-time curriculum in Korean Studies. Central European University is the first European university to host a Global E-School, which brings together 18 universities in 14 countries in Europe and Asia.


Possible thematic areas to be covered during the conference include:

–          From Political to Economic Democratization;

–          Does the Welfare State have a future in Korea?

–          Korea’s foreign and trade policy;
