  Navigating Power Dynamics

This book aims to contribute to the New Southern Policy (NSP)’s optimal enhancement by evaluating the current status of the region and providing thorough direction and concrete, feasible, and practical policy suggestions to the ROK government. The first discussion for the development of the NSP took place in Singapore with South Korean and ASEAN academics in October 2019. While there were diverse opinions from academics, the common understanding among all scholars was that the most serious challenge that the ROK and ASEAN are experiencing is shaping the new role for both sides in coping with the changing regional order that derived mainly from the hegemonic competition between the U.S. and China. Furthermore, although the NSP is introduced as South Korea’s foreign policy initiative, it can also serve as a great example of how small regional players can achieve mutual understanding, prosperity, and peace with like-minded partners. This book anthologizes essays of those academics that have focused their efforts into contemplating the better future that South Korea and ASEAN can make together.
