With support from the Korea Foundation, the National University of Singapore (NUS) has established a Korea Center at its East Asian Institute (EAI).

The opening ceremony was held at NUS on November 29, 2021. In attendance were KF President Lee Geun, Korean Ambassador to Singapore Choi Hoon, NUS President Tan Eng Chye, EAI Director Teh Kok Peng, Korean Center Director Lam Peng Er, and ambassadors from ASEAN member states. Following Singaporean Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan’s keynote speech, university officials and dignitaries unveiled the Korea Center signboard.

Researchers at the Korea Center, including Director Lam Peng Er, plan to publish the Korea Bulletin, a quarterly on peace on the Korean Peninsula and tripartite relations among North and South Korea and ASEAN. They also intend to host international conferences and organize various programs to promote Korea-related research and improve the understanding of Korea in Singapore (and ASEAN as a whole) through research, conferences, and academic network building.

The KF has supported the establishment of Korean studies centers around the world, including the Center for Contemporary Korea Studies at the Institute for East Asian Studies, Keio University, Japan in 2009; the Korea Center at the Institute for Security and Development Policy (ISDP), Sweden in 2018; and the Korean Studies Center at Irkutsk State University, Russia in 2020. The Korea Center at NUS is the first Korean studies center in the ASEAN region established with KF support.
