    Abstract

    La Corée du Sud est depuis quelques décennies une puissance économique montante. Elle présente plusieurs caractéristiques associées aux puissances émergentes, telles que le leadership thématique ou la recherche d’opportunités. La Corée souhaite jouer le rôle de leader thématique en matière de développement, et cherche dans le même temps à assurer les fondations d’une croissance économique durable. Dans cet article, nous examinons la stratégie globale mise en place par la Corée depuis les années 90 pour que sa montée économique se traduise par une plus grande influence politique sur la scène internationale. Plus spécifiquement, nous proposons une évaluation critique de l’approche depuis 2008 de l’administration actuelle de Lee Myung Bak. Nous examinons les facteurs internes qui ont conduit la Corée à poursuivre ses stratégies d’influence, en nous intéressant en particulier à l’héritage du modèle de développement mercantiliste. Cet article soulève des questions concernant la capacité de la Corée de mener une politique étrangère qui ne serve pas ses seuls intérêts économiques, mais joue un rôle actif dans la création de biens publics mondiaux.
