At this KFAS-EUI roundtable, experts come together to share insights on critical issues and the challenges facing both Korea and Europe’s democratic systems.

The very foundations of liberal democracy and the people’s belief in its values are being challenged across the world. Against this backdrop, KFAS and EUI will create a platform to bring together a diverse group of scholars and experts from various academic backgrounds. This closed roundtable aims to derive shared understanding and solutions to common challenges faced by Korea and Europe in issues such as economic inequality, demographic change, populism and migration.


  • Tackling economic inequality
  • Consequences of aging society and its impact on democracy
  • Populism: is it necessarily bad for democracy?
  • Migration policy, etc.
