“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.
