January 31, 2019 — The Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) features Asia Foundation trustee Ambassador Kathleen Stephens in a video interview, “Living History with Ambassador Kathleen Stephens.” In the first of the two-part interview series, Amb. Stephens reflects on her experience as a Peace Corp volunteer and junior diplomatic officer during the formative years of South Korea’s post-war economic and democratic growth.

This Living History features an interview with Ambassador Kathleen Stephens who served as the United States Ambassador to the Republic of Korea from 2008 to 2011. Ambassador Stephens was the first female ambassador and one of the few Korean-speaking senior U.S. diplomats to serve in that position since the opening of the U.S. embassy in Seoul in 1949.
