New Dynamics in Northeast Asia: A New North Korea Policy

Asia is rising. But as it does, experts expect it to become more and more fractious, with endless possibilities for conflict. In particular, continuous provocations by North Korea, such as the recent nuclear test and long-range missile launch, are making the whole region more unstable and volatile. The Republic of Korea, in this context, is facing daunting problems: how to deal with the unruly North and achieve unification in a peaceful manner? And how to redefine and implement its role as a regional stabilizer in the process of national unification?

On Thursday, May 5th from 6 to 8 p.m., don't miss the intellectually stimulating chance for YPFP members to discuss these conundrums with Gheewhan Kim, Consul General of the Republic of Korea in New York, over a light and intimate Korean supper limited to 30 participants.

Doors open at 6:00 PM; the event begins promptly at 6:30 PM. Supper will be served at 7:30 PM following the discussion, courtesy of the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in New York.

Members should RSVP by logging into their accounts. Non-members may register here, but must pay $10 in advance via PayPal to new.york@ypfp.org.
