Director, Institute of State Governance Studies
The Institute of State Governance Studies is among the key research institutes supported by Yonsei University. Established on September 1, 2003, we aim to research, generate, and educate on policies to promote democracy and accelerate economic growth in Korea.
Due to the complex and unpredictable nature of modern social issues, our government and society are faced with new challenges on a near-daily basis. In order to devise solutions, Institute of State Governance Studies researchers from a range of fields including political science, public administration, economics, law, and other social sciences gather to discuss pressing issues. They analyze a wide range of topics linked to critical issues in social science, such as governance, political systems, democracy, peace and security, human welfare, and social rights. Along with providing academic leadership, the institute’s members contribute substantial knowledge that advances the policy-making process.
Over the years, the ISGS has repeatedly demonstrated its research capacity by successfully carrying out far-ranging projects and educational programs for educational institutions and government entities. Through the institute’s extensive data collection and its rich experience with research and education, ISGS strives to remain the most trustworthy general research institute in the social sciences field.
In this sense, we humbly ask you to continue to support us in our future endeavors so that we may continue to be of service to academia, policymakers, and society. Thank you.
