Global Peace Foundation works with our distinguished partners around the world to support the reunification of the Korean peninsula. We believe that peace and prosperity within the Korean peninsula and East Asia are not secured by unification alone, but will be equally determined by the vision of what kind of nation a new unified Korea will become for the world. On such a basis, our primary mission is to provide a vision that could not only move the global community to work toward Korean unification but also to suggest a framework so a new unified Korea can become a positive ally in development and peace for the global society.
The Korea Insight series invites experts and activists to discuss the current critical issues surrounding Korea and Korean unification.
In this interview, we introduce Dr. William Parker, the CEO and President of the EastWest Institute. EastWest Institute is a non-profit, non-partisan think tank that focuses on international conflict resolution through a variety of means. Dr. William Parker explains the various challenges that the Korean Peninsula faces, as well as the bountiful opportunities that Korea can reach with a unified people.
