Thank you for visiting the website of the Institute for East Asia Peace Studies (IEAPS) in Seoul.

IEAPS was established in the beginning of the year 2006 as a bipartisan and non-profit organization. The institution was founded in an attempt to promote peace and prosperity of the East Asia region, including countries of North and South Korea, China, Japan, Russia, Mongolia and ten ASEAN nations.

The purpose of IEAPS is to provide strategic insights and practical policy solutions on global and regional security and prosperity to decision makers. IEAPS undertakes a variety of activities, such as performing research projects, national and international seminars, and publishing a periodic journal.

The scope of research works will cover regional security and strategic issues, economic cooperation and cultural exchange affairs.

The regional security and economic environment has drastically been changing in recent years since the coming of the 21st century. IEAPS will continue to exert its utmost to cope with the challenges facing the region. I sincerely look forward to your continued cooperation, affection and support.

Thank you very much.
