*Press Release for European Journal of Korean Studies Vol 17 (2)*

After sixteen volumes and twenty-seven years, *The Papers of the British
Association for Korean Studies (BAKS Papers)* became the *European Journal
of Korean Studies*. Founded in 1991, the *BAKS Papers *has been a
repository for the most rigorous and interesting academic output on the
Korean Peninsula in the United Kingdom. The *European Journal of Korean
Studies* sees the British Association for Korean Studies developing its
scholarly mission expanding to encourage Korean Studies in the United
Kingdom and beyond, in particular, by stimulating teaching and research on
Korea and facilitating the publication of English-language peer reviewed
academic work in all disciplines on matters Korean. With this evolution,
the *European Journal of Korean Studies *aims to be the leading peer
reviewed, citation indexed outlet for academic output in Europe in the
English language, providing European and global scholars of Korea a venue
that we know has been much in demand, long called for, and greatly

This latest issue under our new name, the* European Journal of Korean
Studies* Vol 17 (2), continues the wide ranging, scholarly, critical and
ambitious spirit of *The Papers of the British Association for Korean
Studies. *Articles in the issue examine the lives and outputs of key
figures of the colonial era and the development of Korean nationalism, Kim
Saryang and An Jae-hong. This issue also features an article on North
Korea’s legal history, organisation and production, which is a landmark of
its type and sure to be much cited in future years. We also feature work on
Korean cultural diasporas and a historical view of North Korean efforts at
bilateralism, a subject much in focus in early 2018. The *European Journal
of Korean Studies *Vol 17 (2) also offers reviews of some of the most
intriguing recent book length writing. At the same time, we seek to add
flexibility to the journal format through the publication of research notes
on pressing issues. This issue, for example, features comparative thoughts
on the nature of Chinese and North Korean national missions from one of the
United Kingdom’s most esteemed scholars of Chinese politics.

We certainly hope you enjoy and are stimulated by this latest issue of
the *European
Journal of Korean Studies *and are interested by the opportunity to publish
peer-reviewed work in the English language in a publication based in
Europe. We welcome new writing by scholars in Western and Eastern Europe,
Korea, Australasia, and beyond and hope that readers will consider
submitting their own work for future issues. The journal will appear twice
a year. The journal has an ISSN number and an application is in process to
have past and future issues indexed by the SSCI and other citation indices.

Editor in Chief - Dr Adam Cathcart (University of Leeds)
