Syndicated Korea

18 June 2015 - 6:15pm

Korean multinational corporations have reached a level of global prominence that positions them well as pacesetters for the future of business. Yet we find that often Korean companies have tremendous trouble attracting and retaining the best global talent. Although the best and the brightest can be recruited to work at Korean firms, often their loyalty is not much deeper than the competitiveness of their compensation package.

Having spoken with many internationals who work at Korean multinationals, I can say with certainty that the essential problem that they encounter is clear....

All That Matters

16 March 2015 - 6:00pm

Long-time foreign correspondent and historian Andrew Salmon has put together a nifty new book entitled Modern Korea: All That Matters that presents with an understated elegance the most essential points about the history, society, economy, and culture of Korea (north and south).

Not only does the compact book of 150 short pages cover all the critical points about Korea, it is written in a plucky style that makes it as...

Look to the Past

5 November 2014 - 6:39pm

As Korean and Chinese economic exchange becomes more extensive, it is essential that a broader range of cultural and educational programs for collaboration be established that assure a broad range of interaction between individuals and smaller organizations, creating a tightly-knit fabric of ties that will bind the two countries together.

Such exchanges must be carefully organized and should focus on long-term projects. Sadly, many exchanges between Korean and Chinese scholars or government officials are limited to formal meetings or dinners and carry no assurance of long-term...

Military Assessment

17 April 2014 - 4:39pm

In the recent back and forth between pundits over how to get the Six Party Talks back on track and over the pros and cons of President Park Geun-hye’s recent speech in Dresden, the problem of developing a long-term vision for the security of a unified Korea that involves the military has been overlooked. Hoping to address this critical point, The Arirang Institute and the Asia Institute held a seminar on April 9 at the University of North Korean Studies, bringing together leading experts, including current military commanders, for an honest discussion of the larger implications of...
