Seventy years has passed since the outbreak of hostilities on the Korean peninsula, and yet an end to the state of hostilities still remains beyond the grasp of the parties involved. As tragic as the anniversary of the war and Korea’s division remains, we are also reminded of the unparalleled political and economic progress witnessed in South Korea, which undeniably represent the most fruitful seven decades in Korea’s history.
To remember the past and to chart the path forward, CSIS and the Korea Foundation will convene our annual Strategic Forum on the 70th anniversary of the war.
Join us on June 24 and 25 for a two-day discussion covering the process of the transition to a permanent peace on the Korean peninsula, the status of the U.S.-ROK alliance, the current global health crisis, the role of global economic governance and multilateral economic response, and opportunities for the future-oriented U.S.-ROK collaboration in security and innovation.
This signature event will be co-hosted with the Korea Foundation, a leading organization of Korea's international exchange and public policy initiative.
