The Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) as a political foundation is working in the field of political education. Its goal is “to serve democracy, peace and development”. Therefore, one aspect of the project in the Republic of Korea is to transfer knowledge about the reunification in Germany to Koreans – particularly to those near the demilitarized zone (DMZ). Moreover, as the HSF has offices not only in the Republic of Korea, but also in China, Indonesia and the Philippines, it shows particular interest in the development of East Asia and the economic integration in this region. Thus this website offers a newsboard, articles, book reviews and links to homepages concerning East Asia Integration Studies.
