Bechtel Conference Center Encina Hall, 616 Serra Street Stanford University
The 11th Annual Koret Workshop
A dramatic opening created by the unique strategic outlooks and personalities of Moon Jae-in, Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump instigated a series of highly symbolic summits in the early months of 2018. The process kicked off by those summits has bogged down, however, as the necessary compromises for an agreement between the United States and North Korea have proved elusive. This year's Koret Workshop will therefore invite experts from a variety of areas in order to reflect on what the stumbling blocks have been as well as prospects for overcoming them. Conference participants will work towards better understanding and supporting potential emerging solutions to the persistent conflict on the Korean Peninsula.
The workshop will consist of three sessions:
Session I: Assessments of Summit Diplomacy
Session II: Challenges and Opportunities in Media Coverage
Session III: Prospects and Pitfalls in the Near-Term
