Northeast Asia Peace Initiative

On the Korean Peninsula following World War II, people with a common history, culture, and language were divided by the Cold War struggle between superpowers. 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.
