The Future of the Korean Peninsula: Current Conflict, Future Peace

Mon September 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

The two Koreas have never seemed further apart. The election of a conservative president in South Korea and the growing isolation of North Korea because of COVID and continuing sanctions seem to make peace and reunification even less likely in the short term. At the geopolitical level, the war in Ukraine and increased U.S.-China tensions have widened divisions on the Korean peninsula. And there appears to be little progress on the diplomatic front between the United States and North Korea. However, other trends point to possible cooperation across the Cold War divide — not only on the Korean peninsula but in the region as a whole.

Our speaker, John Feffer, is director of Foreign Policy In Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies.  He is the author, of Aftershock: A Journey into Eastern Europe’s Broken Dreams (Zed Books), the dystopian novel Splinterlands (Dispatch Books) and its soon-to-be-released sequel Frostlands, and of  North Korea/South Korea: U.S. Policy at a Time of Crisis and other books.His articles have appeared in The New York Times, Washington Post, USAToday, Los Angeles Review of Books, Salon, and many other publications.

Take action: Call on your Congressional representative to cosponsor H.R.3446, the Peace on the Korean Peninsula Act. Pursuing diplomacy with North Korea is pivotal to breaking through the stalemate in US-North Korea relations.
