The Korea Economic Institute of America presents

Knowledge is power



2nd April 2018


KEI Conference Facility, 1800 K St NW, Suite 300, Washington DC, 20006, US


Olga Krasnyak, Lecturer in International Studies, Underwood International College, Yonsei University

Moderated by Kyle Ferrier, Director of Academic Affairs and Research, Korea Economic Institute of America



Science diplomacy has increasingly been adopted by governments around the world as a tool to successfully achieve foreign policy objectives. A branch of public diplomacy, science diplomacy harnesses a country’s soft power from scientific and technological advancements to generate goodwill and cooperation with governments and non-state actors around the world. As one of the world’s leading centers of technology, South Korea certainly has the capacity to successfully incorporate science diplomacy into its foreign policy agenda. However, Seoul has yet to do so.

Please join  the Korea Economic Institute of America (KEI) for a presentation by Dr Olga Krasnyak on how South Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs can make the most of the country’s scientific and technological success and what it can expect to gain by doing so.
