Yun Sik (James) Hwang is the Program Editor of International Business and Economics at the NATO Association of Canada and a contemporary Korean affairs specialist. After his M.A. career (2016) from the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Toronto, he was invited as a speaker and presenter in multiple conferences, events, and symposiums to examine the controversial political and social developments of South Korean nationalism and its entanglements with North Korea that have been intensified as political and social conflicts between the political left and right in the Republic of Korea.

With a specific focus on the contemporary Korean peninsula and the recent intensification of North Korean nuclear threat, his work seeks to address the political, social, and international challenges in the Asia Pacific region under various competing perspectives.
