■Research theme, outline of project research seminar, message to prospects:
 This project seminar is designed to offer academic studies on current affairs and issues in the international relations of East Asia, with a particular focus on the Korean peninsula. In terms of discipline and methodology, social science such as politics and international relations is emphasized, while broader perspectives of area studies including history, sociology, cultural studies and others are encouraged. In this seminar, we aim to educate academics, practitioners, and public leaders with expertise in the Korean peninsula and East Asia in general.
Reflecting the challenges in the region of Northeast Asia surrounding the Korean peninsula, the research topics of the students are diverse: The young generation and changing Korean politics; gender problems in North Korean society; media and nationalism in Korea, Japan, and China; historical/territorial issues and diplomacy in Northeast Asia; globalization and nationalism in sports; regional cooperation and development in Northeast Asia, to name a few.
