As a global hotspot, the Korean peninsula has come to receive substantial attention not just with regards to the peace and security of North-East Asia, but of the world.
Within this context, Japanese-Korean relations are continuously overcoming previous animosities and strengthening in rigor, whilst on the other hand foregrounding serious issues. However the rigorous development of Korean-Japanese relations is essential on both accounts, and in future prospects for a cooperative and communal North-East Asian region which accomplishes the world's most dynamic developments, the importance of relations between both countries is increased still.
Ristumeikan University, with a focus on professors within the Faculty of Law, has since 1998 on its receipt of a science research subsidy promoted large scale collaborative research over a number of years with energetic Korean researchers, such as the "Socio-Legal Research of Democratisation and the Formation of Legal-Political Bodies in Contemporary Korea", as well as established "The North-East Asian Specialists Meeting", and has come to undertake research into contemporary Korea within the context of its connections with the North-East Asia region. In June 2005, having acknowledged the importance, and the urgency, of research into the contemporary North and South Korean peninsula, as well as of research into Japanese-Korean relations, Ritsumeikan Center for Korea Studies; as a centre for the holistic academic research of contemporary Korea, as a centre for educational exchange relating to North and South Korea, and as a regionally accessible centre for the understanding of the Korean peninsula.
