Past Event

The next generation of Korea experts: The young and the brave

Young scholars and practitioners have much to contribute to the policy debate about the Korean peninsula. They offer fresh perspectives on how the Koreas are analyzed, and introduce new information that prompts different ways of thinking about the Koreas. Moreover, young experts’ views will become critical to shaping future-oriented policies toward the Koreas.

On June 19, the Center for East Asia Policy Studies at Brookings hosted a conference featuring presentations by the youngest generation of Korea specialists. Young scholars and practitioners gathered to discuss the different generational attitudes toward Korea policy, presented their perspectives on persistent regional and international policy challenges, and offered new strategies and analyses on peninsular issues through information flows and technology.
