The purpose of the conference is to discuss topical issues of peace and security on the Korean Peninsula. The situation there affects not only the Asia-Pacific region, but also many world processes, including the possibility of peaceful sustainable development in many countries.
2020 marks the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War, which destroyed the lives and destinies of many people. After 70 years, how does humanity look at what happened? Is there a possibility of a new Korean miracle – the unification of Korea into a single state – in the near future?
2020 was a year of dramatic shocks for all of humanity, as evidenced not only by the COVID-19 pandemic, but also by the huge changes that are taking place in the fields of geopolitics, the world economy, education, media, religion and culture, at all levels of society, including families, communities, cities and countries. Has 2020 brought the prospect of peace on the Korean Peninsula closer or further away?
