Domestic Conferences

2023 Security Lecture Support

KIMS sponsored total of 14 security lectures at universities and 9 special lectures at military institutes in 2023.

The special lectures covered military strategies and competitions between the US and China, South Korea’s Indo-Pacific strategy, North Korea’s nuclear threat, as well as the Russian-Ukrainian war that reflects contemporary security dynamics.

Many experts have been invited to share their thoughts and insights with students and military. Not only domestic experts (prof. Sheen Seong-ho at SNU GSIS, prof. Cho Young Nam at SNU GSIS, Park Ihn-hwi at Ewha Womans Univ., Cheong Seong-Chang at Sejong Institute, Lee Su-jin at KIDA, Kang Younghoon at Jeju Peace Institute, etc.), but also many foreign scholars (John Hemmings at Pacific Forum, Bence Nemeth at King’s College London, Gordon Flake at Perth USAsia Centre) participated in the lecture series and presented their works. Moreover, active-duty officers (Shim Jae-hak at ROK Fleet, prof. Jeon Chang-Bin at NWC) and retired officers (VADM So Young-Min, ADM Kim Dukki) shared their expertise trained with field experiences.

KIMS will continue to sponsor various lectures to foster the significance of security and maritime strategy, as well as provide more opportunities to young generation and the military.
