    The Malaysia Scholars on Korea (MASK) Network presents the Network’s second seminar which will focus on Recent Events in the Korean Peninsula and Implica ons for Republic of Korea- Malaysia rela ons and ASEAN’s role on the Korean Peninsula.

    A year a er the launch of the MASK Network, observers of the Korean Peninsula see great movements in the region. In 2018, Democra c People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) was involved in various summits such as the Inter-Korean Summits, North Korea-China Summits and the North Korea-United States Summit. However, peace in the region s ll remains uncertain.

    The year also saw a change in Malaysia, which reignites the interest in the Look East policy. The revival of the policy presents opportuni es for coopera on and collabora on between Malaysia and the Republic of Korea, considering President Moon Jae-in’s announcement of a New Southern Policy in 2017.

    Taking into account all these changes in Malaysia and the Korean Peninsula, what are the projected development and challenges for the coming year?
