Theme The Present and the Future of the Policy on the Korean Peninsula: Assessing the Moon Jae-in Administration and Expectations towards the Next Administration

The Moon Jae-in administration made efforts to ease tensions and establish peace on the Korean Peninsula by presenting the “Peace Economy, New Economy Initiative on the Korean Peninsula.” After the Pyeongchang Olympics (February 2018), successive summits (North and South Korea, South Korea, North America, North Korea and China) have been held, making progress in easing tensions on the Korean Peninsula. However, as the North Korea-U.S. summit in Hanoi broke down (February 2019), discussions on peace on the Korean Peninsula fell to a standstill. Efforts to resume inter-Korean dialogue continued, but discussions on the establishment of peace on the Korean Peninsula came to a halt as North Korea halted external cooperation to contain COVID-19. What are the implications and achievements of the Moon Jae-in administration's peace policy on the Korean Peninsula? What are the expectations and directions for the new government's peace policy on the Korean Peninsula? In this session, we would like to hear 'The Present and Future of Peace Policy on the Korean Peninsula' from experts from key countries related to the Korean Peninsula (Korea, US, China, Japan, and Russia) on these detailed topics.
