Establishment of SK-Korea Foundation Chair in Korean Studies at Brookings Institution

The Korea Foundation in partner with SK has established SK-Korea Foundation Korea Chair in Korean Studies at the Brookings Institution. The chair is made possible by generous endowment gifts from SK and The Korea Foundation. The Korea International Trade Association and an anonymous donor are providing critical operating support. As a senior fellow and inaugural holder, Brookings has appointed Katharine H.S. Moon. She is a professor of political science and holds Edith Stix Wasserman Chair of Asian Studies at Wellesley College.

The Brookings will announce the appointment of Dr. Moon at a public event in Washington on June 2. Her appointment will take effect on June 30, 2014.
