Event description

Description

North Korea has been in the spotlight this year as the on again, off again, negotiations between the US and the DPRK are altering the geopolitical balance in the region and offering the potential to alter the lives of Koreans in both the North and the South. As we come to the end of 2019, what is happening on the Korean peninsula? We will explore the issues from two different unique perspectives: a view from 30,000 feet with Kathleen Stephens, former US Ambassador to the Republic of Korea, and a view from ground level with Dr. Kee Park, neurosurgeon and global humanitarian on North Korea.

North Korean leader, Kim Jung Un, recently gave the Trump administration until the end of 2019 to change its position in order to continue talks on halting the nuclear program and lifting economic sanctions. Ambassador Stephens will shed light on the current tenor of US Korea relations. What are the key issues here, and are any positive results likely in 2020? How might these negotiations affect relations on the Korean peninsula and in the region? Perhaps equally important, are these high level discussions likely to have any impact on daily life inside North Korea? Dr. Kee Park will offer his view of the challenges inside the country and his efforts to support DPRK doctors in caring for North Korean patients, a population that is perhaps most vulnerable and neglected.

This conversation is presented in partnership with the Council of Korean Americans.
