Research impact 

IKSU research continued to have national and international impact as it has provided inputs for governmental, international organization and non-governmental organization policy analysis and decision-making. IKSU research has been used by the UK House of Commons Select Committees and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Korea and the All-Party Group on Religious Freedom.

IKSU staff work closely with governmental agencies and leading think-tanks in the UK, the United States and South Korea, among others, as well as with international organizations, including the United Nations and the European Union. IKSU research has a broad impact in that IKSU members are regularly consulted and interviewed by the national and international media.
