The AEAS is expected to dedicate to the reconstruction of Korean human science by exploring a new academic model to comprehend both the diversity of and universality of East Asia in a systematic way. To do so, the AEAS will create a new model for 'compound human science,' including academic, institutional, and social aspects, by facilitating interdisciplinary and international approaches to East Asian studies. More specifically, the AEAS attempts to construct a new paradigm by searching for a new kind of human science and globalizing Korean humanities, establish a new academic system to combine research, education, and information altogether, and to stabilize the structure of innovative scholarly reproduction.
