It was entitled to participate in all areas of research under the framework of university study projects on cross-nation and regions.
The Northeast Asia Research Center is committed to conduct cross-national and regional studies on Northeast Asia. As the key goal and significant strategic priority of disciplinary construction during the 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-2025), the center embodies JISU’s features and advantages of scientific research with geopolitical dominance and acts as an impetus for serving national strategic needs.

It will conduct studies on national conditions, politics, economy, culture, education, society, and other fields from countries like Russia, Japan, South Korea, North Korea, and Mongolia.

The center works hard to realize integration of production, learning, research and teaching, integrated scientific research, teaching research and senior minister and all-in-one characteristics of disciplinary specialty and scientific research direction. It also aims to be an important research center of Northeast Asian Area Studies with distinctive features, remarkable outcomes, and some domestic influence.
