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. Nocholas Eberstadt, Henry Wendt Chair in Political Economy at the American Enterprise Institute. He explains that reunification could not only be mutually beneficial to two Koreas but also could benefit the global community.
