Australia-Korea Foundation Board appointments

  • Media release

Today I announce the appointment of Dr Pippa Dickson and Dr Peter K. Lee to the board of the Australia-Korea Foundation (AKF).

Both Dr Dickson and Dr Lee bring diverse experience and unique perspectives to support the objectives of the AKF and enrich our bilateral relationship with the Republic of Korea.

Dr Dickson is one of Australia's strongest advocates for art, craft and design and has extensive domestic and international organisational leadership experience. She has delivered significant international programs in the Republic of Korea and across Asia.

Dr Lee is a research fellow at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies, Korea's leading independent think-tank. His focus is on Australia–Korea relations, Australian foreign and defence policy, the Korean Peninsula, middle powers and Indo-Pacific security.

I thank outgoing members Associate Professor Ruth Barraclough and Ms Jacinta Thompson for their substantial contribution to the AKF over the past six years.

The AKF works to strengthen the bilateral relationship between Australia and the Republic of Korea, supporting people-to-people links with one of our most important partners in Asia.
