Abstract

In what respects do South Korea’s middle-power aspirations intersect with its foreign policy? What are some of the important challenges the ROK confronts in sustaining its middle-power ambitions in the twenty-first century? These are important questions—not merely for those who are interested in South Korea’s role in the world, but also for those who analyze middle powers as a class of actor in world politics. The study of middle powers has recently reemerged, including in Asia, where many have begun to appreciate that the U.S.-China relationship is only part of the story regarding significant power shifts in international relations. The degree of agency possessed by middle powers has become increasingly apparent in Asia, where China’s rise, and Beijing’s approach to territorial issues in particular, has triggered pushback from states in the region. This chapter, in short, seeks to answer: How sustainable is South Korea’s middle-power vision?
