Abstract

South Korea is pursuing middle power diplomacy in an increasingly difficult regional context, marked by tensions between China and the US. The key factor shaping South Korea’s identity as a middle power is its relationship with its most important ally, the United States. Over the past decade, South Korea’s middle power diplomacy has evolved, as its focus shifted from regional to global issues. However, global engagement and regional focus cannot be an alternative in South Korea's foreign policy. The challenge for South Korea is to help shape a stable regional architecture while seeking a proactive role in multilateral frameworks.
