Celebrating 60 Years of diplomatic relations between Australia and the Republic of Korea 1961-2021
The ANU Korea Update is the University's flagship annual conference on Korea.
The 2021 Korea Update is a special event as we commemorate and celebrate 60 years since the establishment of formal diplomatic ties between Australia and the Republic of Korea.
This one-day public event brings together key representatives from the academic and policymaking communities to discuss current socio-cultural, political, diplomatic and security issues related to the Korean peninsula.
There will be a morning session from 9.15 - 1pm and an afternoon session from 2-3.30pm.
Following the 2021 Korea Update, we will be holding the Grand Opening of the new Korea Corner from 4-5pm as a virtual event. The ANU Korea Institute and the Republic of Korea Embassy in Canberra warmly invite you to the grand opening of the Korea Corner. The Korea Corner is a new bespoke space in the HC Coombs building on the ANU Acton campus, featuring Korean design details.
It is a dedicated space which represents Korean Studies and Korean culture within the Australian National University. It is open to students, staff and the general public, providing a beautiful venue for Korea-related academic and cultural events and gatherings for faculty, students, residents, and visitors to the Korea Institute.
