Abstract

The 2012 Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul was an excellent opportunity for South Korea to contribute to world peace and it symbolized to the world South Korea’s growth as an “emerging power.” As a foreign policy research think tank in South Korea, the Institute of Foreign Affairs and National Security (IFANS) focuses on global affairs, such as nuclear and non-proliferation issues, especially related to North Korea. IFANS, a government-affiliated think tank, played an important role and made a significant contribution to the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit through its policy research and recommendations, like its interdisciplinary nuclear policy program.
