Jungwon Kim is a master’s student at Sciences Po Paris School of International Affairs, France, majoring in International Economic Policy.
Her research interests lie in the impact of international organizations and their economic policy on individual countries.
As someone who was born into South Korea’s “IMF Generation”, which refers to those who grew up during the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, she learned from the past generation about the importance of a balanced economy.
And with the Global Financial crisis in 2008, she has witnessed how economic crises can impact individual households by increasing economic disparity.
The events have given her strong motivation to help those who are marginalized across the world.
She aims to promote sustainable industrial development in developing countries through her research.
She received her B.A. in Economics and Sociology from Sciences Po Paris Campus du Havre in 2020.
She also spent one year at Northwestern University, Evanston, USA, as an exchange student where she conducted an independent study on how COVID 19 impacted the Korean American community and the response of Korean American organizations. She enjoys traveling and watching international films.
