Event description

Description

2018 will carry with it many challenges from 2017 that have deep ramifications of American, Japanese, and Korean affairs. The three countries not only have to deal with North Korean provocations and regional challenges, but will also have to tackle social and economic issues. We need new ideas that address our 21st century issues.

Far from being inexperienced, today's young generation is perhaps better prepared than any to carry the torch of US-Asia relations and policy. Thanks to cross-cultural exchange programs, the Internet, and immigration trends, the next generation of leaders have more access and are more knowledgeable on world affairs than ever. Using today’s resources to their advantage, these leaders will provide sound policies and continue to strengthen U.S.-Japan-Korea relations.

On January 4, 2018, the International Student Conferences (ISC), Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA (SPFUSA) and Korea Foundation (KF) will provide the voice of future leaders for U.S.-Japan-Korea cooperation. These student leaders alongside senior experts will discuss key present-day topics directly relevant to the US, Japan and Korea. The fifth Trilateral Symposium will demonstrate to the larger audience the ability of the next generation to engage in much needed productive dialogue on U.S.-Japan-Korea relations, including ideas for improving trilateral cooperation.

Please note that space is limited, RSVPs are required.

Registration Begins at 8:00 AM
