Journal and Institutional Information
The Journal of East Asian Affairs, sponsored by the Institute for National Security Strategy (INSS), is a peer-reviewed biannual journal appearing since 1981. INSS is a non-profit organization founded in 1977 in Seoul, South Korea after restructuring from the predecessor Research Institute for International Affairs. Currently, INSS has a diverse group of resident analysts trained both in South Korea and across the globe.
The Journal of East Asian Affairs is dedicated to the development of both policy recommendations and theoretical frameworks regarding East Asian international relations and international security, emerging and nontraditional threats, geopolitics and geostrategy, political economy and economic security, inter-/intra-regional conflict and cooperation, cyber-security, human rights, climate change, international public health, and social and development issues. The journal also publishes work on inter-Korean relations. Contributors are encouraged to engage with their subject matter both theoretically and empirically. The journal does not adhere to any specific policy line, political ideology, theoretical approach, or methodology.
The Journal of East Asian Affairs has nearly 2,000 subscribers worldwide, including universities and research institutes, government agencies and bureaus, and media firms. The journal is available both in hard copy (for a subscription fee) and electronically through the INSS website (free access).
