Europe Korea Expert Panel 

The Europe Korea Expert Panel is a network of leading Europe-based experts on Korean and Northeast Asian affairs drawn from think tanks, academia and research institutes. The panel has been established to highlight European views on developments in the Korean Peninsula. The KF-VUB Korea Chair publishes these views, among with its own reflections, in the ‘Ask Europe’s Expert Panel’ series.
