EU-ROK relations: Leveraging ASEM in uncertain times
KF-VUB KOREA CHAIR POLICY BRIEF • 17/10/2018

At a time of accelerating global change and threats to the rules-based international system, the EU and South Korea have a massive joint interest to step up their cooperation and maximise the opportunities of the ASEM framework.
