UPF conferences and forums bring together leading diplomats and scholars to offer insights into prospects for improved relations among the countries of the region. Political, military, economic, and civil-society factors are considered at conferences and forums. Civil-society initiatives between South Korea and North Korea include tourism, humanitarian projects, and various forms of personal engagement. Scroll down for reports.
