NKIDP is proud to co-sponsor the international conference Peace on the Korean Peninsula and the Security Environment in Northeast Asia on May 1, 2008 in Seoul, South Korea. The conference commemorates the 10th anniversary of NKIDP partner institution, the University of North Korean Studies.

Despite the end of the Cold War, Northeast Asian geo-politics – particularly on the Korean Peninsula – have retained many of their Cold War characteristics. This conference, convened at a dynamic juncture in the trilateral U.S.-ROK-DPRK relationship, aims to reassess the security environment in Northeast Asia.

With a newly inaugurated South Korean President and the United States' presidential election campaign in mid-stride, this conference is a valuable opportunity to evaluate the future of ROK-U.S. relations, inter-Korean relations, regional stability, as well as the perspectives of the United States, China, Japan, Russia, Australia, and other countries.

Finally, this conference aims to examine the views of the ROK, U.S., China, Japan and Russia on the establishment of peace regime on the Korean Peninsula and multilateral security cooperation in Northeast Asia.

The organizers expect that the outcome of the conference will prove to be useful to the policy and academic communities of all of the countries concerned.
