The 4th annual Koret Conference will convene to explore the similarities and differences in the national experiences and national identities of two important middle powers on China's periphery, Korea and Vietnam, whose natures and journeys are seldom compared. Their current outlooks on regionalism and their relationships with China and the United States will be reviewed as well. The conference will also analyze the past and present impacts of their shared proximity to China on Korean and Vietnamese national identity and security.

This event is made possible by the generous support from the Koret Foundation.
