>> Background

South Korea has undergone tremendous political and socioeconomic transformations over the past few decades. It accomplished impressive economic growth in the 1960s and the 1970s, achieved democratization in the 1980s, weathered a serious financial crisis and carried out market reforms in the 1990s. These transformations resulted in the emergence and empowerment of the "new mainstream" in Korean society, with different values, orientations, and outlooks on domestic politics, economic and social policies, and foreign relations. KNSI aims to discover, articulate, and represent the views of Korea's "new mainstream" by exploring and developing policy recommendations on diverse political, economic, and social issues Korea is currently confronted with, in order to provide a new national strategy that helps to achieve peaceful reunification of Korea.

Asiative is a quarterly journal published by the Korea National Strategy Institute (KNSI). The word Asiative is coined from a combination of the words Asian and alternative, creative, initiative. Asiative is committed to serving as a medium for achieving a peaceful Korean Peninsula and global community through discovery of alternative policies for Asia and the world from an Asian perspective.
