You must have been praying! What looked like an inevitable stand-off between North Korea and the U.S. has, in just a few weeks, transformed into the possibility of an unprecedented summit between the two countries. Is there a real possibility of peace in the Korean Peninsula? Can we dare to hope for reconciliation?
Come join us for four Wednesdays to learn more about North Korea-U.S. relations. What is the history and ideology of North Korea that keeps them resilient despite all odds? What has happened in North Korea after the travel ban and severe sanctions have been imposed? Come and hear from practitioners, researchers, and professors to gain a deeper understanding of North Korea and its people.
The seminars are in English, but translation in Korean is available.
