The Prospect for Peace on the Korean Peninsula Luncheon

November 1, 2019 at 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

While the media focus on the Korean Peninsula has slowed since the 2019 Hanoi Summit, the tension still remains. Despite initial optimism and relationship building between President Trump and Chairman Kim Jung-un, the two summits have not yielded significant result in the way of securing North Korean denuclearization, and Kim Jong-un has not yet given up the hermit kingdom’s nuclear program.

To evaluate the prospects for peace on the Korean Peninsula, it is essential to understand the relationships between South and North Korea and negotiations between the United States and North Korea. Nothing is more important than ensuring that the U.S. and South Korea are on the same page.

Come join for a luncheon discussion on “The Prospect for Peace on the Korean Peninsula” and learn how the U.S. and South Korea are working together on one of the world’s most pressing security issues. Dr. Kim Reimann, Associate Professor from Georgia State University will moderate a conversation with:

  • Scott Snyder, Senior Fellow for Korea Studies & Director of the Program on U.S.-Korea Policy, Council on Foreign Relations
  • Dr. Han-shik Park, Professor Emeritus & Founding Director of the Center for the Study of Global Issues, University of Georgia
  • Soojin Park, Public Policy Fellow, Wilson Center & former Deputy Spokesperson, Ministry of Unification in the Korean Government

Members: $20

Non-members: $40
