Place: Auditorium, The Asan Institute for Policy Studies

Topic: “Foreign Policy Making Process in China”

The Asan Institute for Policy Studies hosted an International Conference entitled, “China’s Foreign Policy: Who Makes it, and How is it Made?” in Seoul, Korea from May 19-20.
With the rise of China as a major economic as well as political power, it is important to gain a firmer understanding of the foreign policy making process in China, a topic that has gained increasing attention among academic and policy experts. This conference will bring together some of the best known and most respected experts on this topic from Korea, the United States, China, Japan, Australia, and Sweden.
Some of the topics to be covered include the role of key government institutions (Foreign Ministry, Party, PLA, State-owned enterprises), “NGOs”(universities, think tanks), mass media, key actors and the decision-making process on policies towards the two Koreas, and the foreign policy outlook of the “Fifth Generation” Leadership.
