University Programs

 

KEI University ProgramsEvery year, KEI sponsors 16-20 university programs related to Korea and Northeast Asia at universities across America. Programs come in many forms, but usually feature two to four Washington, DC-based experts from government or think tank communities to lecture on timely policy issues and engage the campus community.  KEI is excited to work with local universities and their communities to enhance the local interest in Korea and assist those who wish to learn more.

KEI will coordinate with universities to design a program that focuses on topics of interest on campus, such as South Korea, North Korea, nuclear security, China, economic relations, Japan, trade, human security, military alliances, and other issues facing Northeast Asia.  In addition to panel discussions or lectures, KEI can also coordinate career panels for students interested in getting a job in Washington, DC or the international relations field. 

KEI also leads Six-Party Talks Simulations that turn individuals into lead negotiators for one of the six countries involved in the North Korea nuclear negotiations (i.e., United States, Russia, South Korea, North Korea, China, and Japan). As government representatives, they are tasked to reach a comprehensive agreement for North Korea's denuclearization.  With private information, resources, and their own wit, negotiators are out to win the best outcome for their respective governments. Participants will learn about the issues involved in the Six Party Talks, nuclear diplomacy, and the difficulties of international negotiation, while having a great time through experiential learning. No prior knowledge is necessary to succeed in the game. The simulation is appropriate for college classrooms, policy grad schools, MBA programs, and negotiation classes.

KEI’s programs have brought in audiences of over 100 students, faculty and community members, and have aided universities in their development of Korea-related departments and programs. These events give students and faculty direct access to the experts and policymakers who are making many of the decisions affecting the U.S.-Korea relationship and U.S.-Asia policy.
