Fung Global Fellows 2021-22

Seven exceptional scholars from around the world will come to Princeton University this fall to begin a year of research, writing and collaboration as the ninth cohort of Fung Global Fellows. Six will engage in their fellowship virtually; one will be on campus.

The 2021-22 academic year's fellows are:

June Park

Fung Global Fellow

June Park's Open Scholar Site

June Park is the Salzburg Global Seminar-Korea Foundation fellow in the Finance and Governance Program, working on post-pandemic geoeconomics conflicts in data governance and technology. She is a political economist by training and works on trade, energy and tech conflicts with a broader range of regional focuses not just on the U.S. and East Asia, but also Europe. She studies economic pressures and conflicts, analyzing different policy outcomes based on governance structures — domestic institutions, leaderships and bureaucracies that shape the policy formation process. Park earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in political science with a focus on international security from Korea University. She received her Ph.D. in political science with a focus on international political economy from Boston University as a Fulbright Fellow, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore. As a 2020-2021 East Asia Voices Initiative Fellow of the East Asia National Resources Center at the George Washington University (GWU) Elliott School of International Affairs, she focuses on data privacy, governance of AI and country-specific initiatives. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she has published widely on South Korea’s pandemic governance while remotely conducting her fellowship at GWU from Seoul, South Korea. As a Fung Global Fellow, she will publish her completed work, “Governing a Pandemic with Data on the Contactless Path to AI: Personal Data, Public Health and the Digital Divide in South Korea, Europe and the United States in Tracking of COVID-19.” At Princeton, she will widen her research scope to investigate the varied levels of country access to vaccines and the governance of vaccine procurement, alongside data deployment in vaccination processes across jurisdictions, with a specific case study on U.S.-South Korea vaccine production and research collaboration.
