INAKOS supports and nurtures the development of Korean studies in Indonesia by accommodating the various interests in Korean studies from Indonesian and international scholars as well as young generations who wish to develop Korean studies at home (Indonesia).
Established on 7 May 2009, INAKOS incorporates both academic and nonacademic activities to cater the needs of its members and wider audiences while making sure that it gives positive impacts to Indonesia-Korea relation at present and future time.
Over the last 6 years, apart from carrying out seminars, workshops, and cultural festivities, we also have published 10 books on Korea in diverse topics and 5 journals. And more to come.
We expect that a lot of Indonesians graduated from Korea would further apply their knowledge and expertise to develop Korea-related studies in Indonesia. Although some may not do so, the number of Indonesian scholars and students pursuing higher education in Korea keeps increasing. (Currently, there are about 1,250 students as of Jan. 2017). In itself, this has been a tremendous leap from the previous decade. They are the prospective and promising future of Korean studies in Indonesia. Some of the graduates have been proudly collaborating with INAKOS.

INAKOS strives to find ways to secure its place among international communities of Korean studies. Based on the fact that there are currently only 4 universities in Indonesia (Universitas Nasional, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Universitas Indonesia, & Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia) that offer Korea-related classes, Korean Studies can be considered as in its developing stages in Indonesia as compared to those in the US, China, or even in Thailand and Vietnam. Via INAKOS, we strive towards a better future.

Pioneered by the Indonesian alumni of Korean universities, an idea of integrating and uniting all expertise in Korean studies among Indonesians was conceived. Initiated by a small number of alumni, the association has finally come into existence as a forum where all alumni, both Indonesian and foreigners alike, coexist to nurture Korean Studies. This association welcomes scholars or enthusiasts with interests in Korea.
