Australia and Korea have three major forums for policy exchange in common in the Antarctic system: meetings of the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Parties, the Committee for Environmental Protection, and the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources. However there are many other spheres of Antarctic commonality between Australia and Korea, including in the research, education and logistics communities. This project will establish stakeholder networks and build a framework to enable collaborative approaches in scientific research (through bilateral partnerships between Antarctic and marine research institutions including the Asian Forum for Polar Sciences), as well as support academic exchange (through strategic partnerships with Korean academic institutions) and economic opportunities (through the linking of Tasmanian businesses with Korean Antarctic business interests).
