Please join the CSIS Korea Chair for a special event looking at how South Korea can enhance and leverage its soft power in fields such as K-pop, soap operas, movies, video games, contemporary art, sports, education, business, and technology.
Geography is not destiny. South Korea was dealt a weak hand by virtue of location, but now it has the economic and cultural resources to produce significant soft power, allowing it to design a foreign policy that will give it a larger role in global governance. South Korea today has an unparalleled opportunity to expand its international influence in ways that would have been unimaginable just a generation ago.
Scholars, journalists, authors, industry leaders and other leading experts join us for sessions to raise the level of understanding of South Korea’s soft power and analyze the role of soft power in the context of U.S.-ROK alliance while offering suggestions for how Korean soft power can be used to broaden and strengthen the alliance.
This event is made possible by generous support from the Korea Foundation and the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
A nonpartisan institution, CSIS is the top national security think tank in the world.
