      The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, a U.S. public policy think tank, has launched a new center for Korean issues.

      The Wilson Center on Wednesday opened the Hyundai Motor-Korea Foundation Center for Korean History and Public Policy. Hyundai donated US$2 million and the Korea Foundation $1 million for the facility.

      The new center will be tasked with shedding light on modern Korean history and conduct research on public policy and Korea's international role.

      The Wilson Center was established by Congress in memory of the former U.S. president in 1968. The University of Pennsylvania has ranked the Wilson Center fifth among think tanks in the U.S. and 10th in the world.
