International Area Studies Review

​International Area Studies Review (IASR) is the quarterly peer-reviewed publication of the Center for International Area Studies at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, Seoul, and the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO).

IASR publishes high quality theoretical, analytical, and empirical works on international politics, economics, culture, sociology, law and the arts contributing to the development of international area studies. The IASR actively encourages both theory-oriented and applied research to help close the gap between pure theory and practice.

IASR stands alone as the area studies journal that is truly global in perspective. Scott Gates is the journal's Editor-in-Chief, and the journal is owned by the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (HUFS). All articles in the latest issues is available below.
