The Korean Election
On March 9, Korea will hold presidential elections, the eighth round of them since the transition to democracy in the late 1980s. The outcome will be consequential: will Lee Jae-myung continue the legacy of incumbent Moon Jae-in or will the election mark a swing back toward a conservative candidate, Yoon Seok-youl? The answer will have implications not only for domestic politics but for foreign policy on the peninsula and the U.S.-ROK alliance. Please join us for a webinar on March 14 where Erik Mobrand, RAND Corporation and Stephan Haggard, UC San Diego will discuss the results.

Erik Mobrand is Korea Policy Chair and a senior political scientist at the RAND Corporation. Mobrand is the author of Top-Down Democracy in South Korea (University of Washington Press, 2019) and articles on topics ranging from corruption, political parties to gender and Korean relations with Southeast Asia. He received his Ph.D. in politics from Princeton University and served as an assistant professor of political science at the National University of Singapore. Before joining RAND, Mobrand also taught at Seoul National University in the Graduate School of International Studies.
