The Diplomat: COVID-19 Presents Opportunities for Australia-South Korea Relations

Vasey Fellow Tom Corben publishes a new article in The Diplomat. He examines the opportunities for Australia and South Korea to collaborate and shine together, given the lack of global leadership in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. Their shared experiences coping with the COVID-19 pandemic and history of middle power cooperation put Seoul and Canberra in a good position to enhance bilateral relations and collaborate on a range of initiatives in pursuit of international cooperation to address the global pandemic.
