The Annual Conference of the International Council on Korean Studies
Location: 
Georgetown University, Copley Formal Lounge
37th & O Street NW
Washington, DC 2007
Description: 

The U.S.-ROK relationship has evolved from a strategic alliance designed to deter aggression from North Korea into a comprehensive strategic alliance, expanding well beyond the security realm. But, this broader vision of the alliance is still one in the making. With the Washington-Seoul summit postponed over the outbreak of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome in Korea, the allies now have more time to solidify an agenda that not only reaffirms their strong bilateral relationship, but sets goals to cooperate on hot-button regional and global issues. Join us for a distinguished U.S.-ROK statesman’s dialogue on the key issues for the summit agenda and how the allies should address current regional challenges, while further modernizing the alliance to tackle the emerging global threats of the 21st century.
