Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Korea 2013: Politics, Economy and Society contains the table of contents and preface. With respect to South Korea's international linkages and global profile, the Lee Myung-bak administration, however, showed a great deal of dynamism, inter alia, by seeing free trade agreements with the European Union (EU) and, more controversially, with the United States (US) through, by pursuing an active 'resources diplomacy', by increasing development co-operation funds and by actively contributing to peace-keeping operations around the globe, by hosting a number of high-profile conferences. In sum, the Lee Myung-bak administration's quest for 'middle-power status' and global recognition achieved some visible results.
