On this week’s “The Diplomat,” we meet Chancellor of the Korea National Diplomatic Academy, Kim Joon-hyung. The Korea National Diplomatic Academy (KNDA) started out as an education and training center for diplomats in 1963, while the Institute of Foreign Affairs and National Security (IFANS) was established in 1977. The institutions were merged and expanded into what KNDA is today in 2012, and it currently works to nurture Korea’s diplomatic personnel and researches diplomatic policy. Diplomacy plays a crucial role in the midst of increasingly complicated international affairs and as Korea’s status rises in the world. We’ll hear from Chancellor Kim about the current issues and policy direction for Korea’s diplomacy.
