WHAT: A Two-Day Conference, part of Bridging Change in Asia: New York Looks to Korea and Japan
Escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea, rising anti-American sentiment in South Korea and global turmoil from the American-led war in Iraq have placed new pressures on Japan-Korea relations that could have wide-ranging implications for economic and political stability throughout northeast Asia for decades to come. This conference will explore the challenges facing Japan, South Korea and the U.S. in this increasingly complex global landscape.
