Project description

The Korea Update is ANU's flagship annual conference on Korea. This one-day public event in the national capital brings together key representatives from the academic and policy-making communities to discuss current social, political, economic, and security issues related to Korea. Hosted by the ANU Korea Institute, it builds on a highly successful platform inaugurated in 2005. The theme of the 2019 Korea Update is Turning Corners. It will focus on diplomatic developments, including pertinent Korean affairs that affect trade and diplomacy. Recent developments have opened opportunities for reconciliation but may close again without warning. Considering support for the ruling party is key to avoiding an impasse in resolving long-reigning tensions in the region, what is President Moon's position regarding the interests of major powers, and what exactly are they? And what is the role Australia can and should play?
