Keun-Gwan Lee is a professor of law at the School of Law, Seoul National University, Korea. He received his LL.B. from Seoul National University, LL.M. from Georgetown University Law Center and Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge. His doctoral thesis titled “The Law of State Succession in the Post-Decolonization Period with Special Reference to Germany and the former Soviet Union” revisited the law of state succession from a historical and critical perspective. He taught international law at various institutions including the Republic of Korea Naval Academy, Konkuk University (Seoul, Korea) and Kyushu University (Fukuoka, Japan) before joining the School of Law, Seoul National University in 2004.
His research interests include, among others, the history and theory of international law (in particular, the ‘reception’ of modern international law in East Asia), the law of state succession (with particular reference to the relations between South and North Korea), the law of the sea and the international protection of cultural heritage. He served as director of studies (English-speaking section) at the Hague Academy of International Law in 2010. He has worked closely with UNESCO in the protection of cultural property, serving as, among others, chairperson of the Inter-Governmental Committee Promoting the Return of Cultural Property to its Countries of Origin in the 2012-2014 period. He gave a special lecture at the Hague Academy of International Law on “the Return of Displaced Cultural Objects to their Countries of Origin” in 2018.
