KEI Conference Facility

As many countries involved in Northeast Asia gear up for national elections and transitions, tensions over territorial issues and historical legacies have risen as well. For South Korea and Japan, two democracies and respective allies of the United States, old issues have kept them from being immune to recent diplomatic disputes. With changes occurring in leadership and society, both inside South Korea and Japan and in their surrounding neighbors, is there a way for the two sides to move forward and place themselves in advantageous positions to prosper in the Asia-Pacific Century?


KEI will host an off-the-record discussion with experts to talk about these issues and their effect on the near and long term future relations in Northeast Asia.

Seating is limited, RSVPs are required.
