Throughout the year, the NCAFP held an Emerging Leaders Workshop of 11 next-generation scholars and experts from all over the world to discuss issues related to Korean Peninsula security. The Emerging Leaders shared their research and analysis on a variety of topics that deserve reexamination at this critical juncture. These include:
- Understanding the Republic of Korea's (ROK) policies and priorities--past, present, and future
- Reengaging the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), from nuclear negotiations to humanitarian assistance
- Analyzing the ROK's broader role in the Indo-Pacific region and the world
To conclude the workshop, the NCAFP is pleased to share this edited volume of the Emerging Leaders' policy papers on the Korean Peninsula and beyond.
