Thank you for visiting Yonsei CIS Homepage
On behalf of the research fellows and staffs of the Center for International Studies (CIS), I am pleased to welcome you to our website. As a research wing of the Yonsei Graduate School of International Studies, one of the best graduate international studies programs in East Asia, the CIS functions as a focal point of research and intellectual discourse for key regional, transnational and global issues and challenges.

The CIS aims at promoting, supporting and disseminating theoretical and policy researches in the fields of international trade and finance, international cooperation and development, international management and law, and area studies. The center encourages research collaboration within and beyond the University and promotes effective links with outside experts and policy makers. The center hosts distinguished visiting fellows who participate in research programs while in residence. The center is also committed to education of global citizens by developing and sponsoring active training programs.

Despite its relatively short history, the CIS has achieved a substantial progress in reaching its goals. On this informative website, we would like to provide and share information on our recent achievements and research outcomes that the center has coordinated and directed. You will also have access to on-going research activities currently being conducted in the center and various outreach programs including distinguished lectures and seminars, forums, and conferences.

With this achievement as a foundation, the CIS has launched a new development plan in order to grow as a leading research center in international studies in East Asia. Expressing once again a heartfelt welcome to all who visit us, we sincerely hope this site will help you learn more about us, and look forward to your continued support and attention.
