The Center for Security Policy Studies-Korea (CSPS-Korea) will be led by Kwon So-young, an assistant professor of government at GMU Korea, the school said in a press release. Prior to joining GMU Korea, Kwon was a research associate fellow at University of Cambridge’s East Asia Institute and a Shorenstein fellow at Stanford University’s Asia Pacific Research Center. CSPS-Korea will act as a local branch of the Center for Security Policy Studies (CSPS), which is located in Arlington, Virginia. Together they will hold joint symposiums on international security issues.
