The recent corporate and political debacles in South Korea have compounded the nation’s decades-long struggle as an emerging democracy. The public backlash following the scandals have exposed simmering resentment towards South Korea’s prominent political figures and the leaders of its chaebol conglomerates.  The subsequent unprecedented presidential transition and the Samsung leadership crisis continues to generate much media coverage, public interest as well as scholarly debates.

The Centre for Governance, Institutions and Organisations (CGIO) at NUS Business School is pleased to present Professor Katharine Moon as the speaker at its upcoming Academic Seminar, “The Future of Governance in South Korea: Ongoing Challenges for Business and Politics”.  Held on 23 May 2017, Professor Moon will provide insights that consider both domestic politics and foreign policy, as well as shed light on the future of Korean governance in this time of unsettling uncertainties.

This seminar will be of particular relevance to academics and students from the Business, Political Science and Public Policy faculties. It will also interest business leaders, as well as policy professionals and practitioners, who have been following South Korea’s recent developments.
