WATCH Next Gen Policy Perspective: The Korean Peninsula & Beyond

The Future of the Korean Peninsula and Beyond:
Next Generation Policy Perspectives

The Korean Peninsula is critical to regional and global security. Under the new ROK administration, President Yoon’s “global pivotal state” initiative demonstrates efforts to establish the ROK as a global player. Furthermore, President Yoon and President Biden have pledged to deepen US-ROK alliance coordination on a variety of traditional and non-traditional security issues beyond the Indo-Pacific region. However, there remain enhanced security challenges in the region that require urgent attention, namely the continued expansion of the DPRK nuclear weapons and missiles programs, as well as deteriorating US-China relations.

Over the last six months, the NCAFP organized a group of 11 next-generation scholars and experts from all over the world to share their research ideas related to these topics, and to use that research to inform policy recommendations to improve conditions on the Korean Peninsula for the future. Please join us for a discussion with these emerging leaders as they share their insights on addressing Korean Peninsula security issues.
