National Assembly Future Institute was established to achieve expertise in future research, independence from political parties and the administration, and convergence throughout sectors. We will become 'a national partner opening a new future'.

Greetings! The National Assembly Future Institute is a government-supported research institute directly affiliated under the Chairman of the National Assembly that predicts the future of Korea and researches future strategies.

Why is there a future institute in the National Assembly when there are many government-supported institutes under the administration? First, under the 5-year single-term presidential system, it is difficult to put priority on researches that look into a distant future. Occassional future researches may be difficult to accumulate expertise. Second, different political parties may not always agree with the future visions of Korea proposed by the administration. There are limitations for government-supported institutes under the administration to point out the need for policy changes. Third, since existing government-supported institutes are specialized by sector, conducting convergence research is not easy. As such, the National Assembly Future Institute was established directly under the Chairman of the National Assembly to achieve independence from political parties and the administration and convergence throughout humanities, social and scientific technology by professionally focusing on future research.

The purpose of future research is to change today into the desired future instead of satisfying curiosity about the future. Therefore, future research consists of future prediction, future selection and future strategy. We will become the 'partner opening up new future' by showing people the future, identifying the future that people want and guiding toward it. We'd like to urge your support so that the upgraded NAFI can fulfill its roles.

Jin Park, Director of National Assembly Future Institute
