This roundtable will assess the first year in office of the Moon Jae-in administration in South Korea. It will examine the government’s progress on issues of economic reform and corporate governance, including limiting corruption and enhancing the transparency of the country’s chaebol. It will also consider political representation, government legitimacy and participatory politics in the context of the 2016-17 Candlelight Protests, including the impact of the Internet and social media.

This event is in partnership with the KF-VUB Korea Chair at the Institute for European Studies of Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
