The United States Re-Balancing in East Asia
March 26, 2014
The Asia Institute
This seminar embodies the spirit behind our efforts at the Asia Institute to increase the commitment of the United States to East Asia over the long-term in a constructive and focused manner. We feel strongly that a pivot to Asia, a fundamental re-balancing of national priorities, is essential to the economic, political and security concerns of the United States, but we do not think that such a shift can take place as a result of moving around aircraft carriers or selling more missile defense technology to nations in the region. Only by building a deep human network that ties the United States to East Asia through person-to-person professional and personal relations over a lifetime can we hope to have any meaningful impact.

Director Emanuel Pastreich and Mayor Wansoon Park of Seoul gathered together on February 26 for a broad discussion of Korea’s potential and specifically the remarkable role that Seoul is playing as a center for innovation. The group of sixty or so civil servants from Seoul City Hall engaged in a lively discussion about how Seoul can serve as a leader in creating a new civilization for this age.
The occasion was the “Road of Books” reading group led by Mayor Park which had selected Emanuel’s new book “Another Republic of Korea” for this month’s discussion.
Emanuel presented a “Made In Seoul Declaration” in which he put forth a vision of Seoul as the leading city in the world that would empower its citizens to create their own environment.

“Security Implications of Korean Reunification”
April 9, 2014
The prospect of a reunification of the Korean Peninsula has brought great enthusiasm to certain circles and raised the possibility that the security conundrum that has kept Northeast Asia from achieving
the integration that Europe has might at last be on the way to a solution. Yet any massive geopolitical transformation brings with it unanticipated consequences and risks. The nations surrounding North Korea have not reached a consensus on what a post-unification Northeast Asia would look like.
This seminar will explore the implications of the reunification of the Korean Peninsula for Northeast Asia and for the world, bringing together a group of experts to share their perspectives on strategic significance of reunification.
