Since its establishment in 1957 as the first university-affiliated research institute in Korea, ARI has built human and material infrastructure to deal with diverse critical issues in relation to Northeast Asia. This foundation has allowed the institute to play a leading role in Northeast Asian regional studies. While most Korean regional research institutes have adopted the approaches of social science exclusively, ARI has conducted balanced research both in humanities and social sciences, thus presenting outstanding outcomes both to academia and the public. Upon being selected as a research institute of the Humanities Korea Project for regional studies in 2008, the institute has enlarged its body of researchers and restructured the organization so as to operate with greater efficiency and transparency.
