GW Institute for Korean Studies (GWIKS)


Founded in the year 2016, the GW Institute for Korean Studies (GWIKS) is a university wide institute housed in the Elliott School of International Affairs at the George Washington University. The establishment of the GWIKS was made possible by a generous grant from the Academy of Korean Studies (AKS). The mission of GWIKS is to consolidate, strengthen, and grow the existing Korean studies program at GW, and more generally in the greater D.C. area and beyond. The Institute of Korean Studies enables and enhances productive research and education relationships within GW, and among the many experts throughout the region and the world.

Occasionally, GWIKS also hosts (and/or co-hosts with the NRC) events and lectures for topics related to East Asia. For more information on upcoming events, please redirect to the GWIKS website by clicking the “Upcoming GWIKS Events” provided below.
