Korean AMPA Students Present at de Tocqueville Seminar

Painting of de TocquevilleIn the 1830s Frenchman Alexis de Tocqueville spent nine months in the U.S. traveling and observing conditions. These observations and reflections became the basis for his classic work, Democracy in America.

For two years, our Korean students enrolled in the AMPA program spend time studying public administration and observing life in the U.S. — sort of a 21st-century take on de Tocqueville’s journey .

The Korean de Tocqueville seminar is designed as the culminating activity of their time in Colorado and at the School of Public Affairs. The goal of the seminar is to get students to think about an administrative or significant social problem in Korea, and to utilize their SPA learning in a forum to demonstrate their English language skills while educating SPA community members about this issue.

This year the topic selected by the students is “Balanced Development Policy in South Korea: The Case of Korea’s New Administrative Capital, Se-Jong City.” Presenters included:

  • Hye-Young Shim
  • Jung Sang Hong
  • In Goo Lee
  • Kidoong Choi
