Abstract

During rapid technological advancement, the security paradigm is undergoing a profound transformation. The convergence of economic security, technological innovation, and geopolitical competition has challenged traditional notions of defense and resilience, leading to rethinking of strategic alliance between the United States and South Korea. This talk outlines the complexities of modern security dynamics to explore the relationship between technological competition, economic stability, and the intensifying rivalry between the United States and China in key emerging sectors. It also highlights the critical role of strategic partnerships in safeguarding national interests in this fast-changing security landscape.
