How important is Korea to Australia’s regional outlook? What elements of the Australia-South Korea relationship should be strengthened? And can South Korea continue to effectively juggle the competing security priorities of a rising China and a belligerent North Korea? 

In this episode of the National Security Podcast, Dr Lauren Richardson and Dr Michael Cohen join David Andrews to examine the Korean peninsula in the context of Australian foreign and security policy. 

Dr Lauren Richardson is a Lecturer in the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs at ANU. 

Dr Michael Cohen is a Senior Lecturer and the PhD Convenor at the ANU National Security College.

David Andrews is the acting Policy Manager at the ANU National Security College.
