•About EUSA Korea•Greetings from President
Chong Wha LEE
Welcome to the European Union Studies Association of Korea (EUSA-Korea)!
Since its establishment in 1994, the EUSA-Korea has continually endeavoured to play its role as a major European Union studies’ academic institution for the past 25 years with relentless efforts by the first President Professor Kim, Cae One, subsequent presidents and other members.
The EUSA-Korea conducts an in-depth research and paper presentations about the EU-related issues in particular and Europe in general through regular seminars and special conferences. Also, the EUSA-Korea publishes two journals, “Korean Journal of EU Studies” in Korean/English and “Asia-Pacific Journal of EU Studies” in English. The Korean Journal of EU Studies, being published actually three times a year since 1996, is indexed in the KCI (Korean Citation Index) while the Asia-Pacific Journal of EU Studies, to be published twice a year since 2002, is indexed in the RISS and also in the Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers. The EUSA-Korea involves itself in international exchange programs through its active participation in the biennial ECSA-World Conferences and the annual EUSA Asia Pacific Conferences.
This year, based on the accomplishment and international networking that we have, the EUSA-Korea aims to reinforce its activities more. The EUSA-Korea selected 2 young scholars in the EU studies, in Feb. 2020 on a competitive basis, under the auspice of Jean Monnet program. We are planning to hold 4 Conferences including April and October regular biannual Conferences. The foregoing two young scholars are expected to write the EU-related papers and to present them in regular or special Conferences that the EUSA-Korea will host. The EUSA-Korea provides public and private think tanks, Universities, related academic associations, and EU delegation to Korea with forums for various EU-related issues, including climate change, EU Green Deal, and Model EU as well. The EUSA-Korea is also planning to participate in the 2020 EUSA Asia Pacific Conference in Christchurch New Zealand in June.
We will continue our voyage into the delightful and rewarding academic research and intellectual exchanges with our members and fellow researchers home and abroad. We warmly welcome anyone who wishes to be part of this journey. Your continuous interest in and support for the EUSA-Korea will be highly appreciated.
