Prospects for Peace on the Korean Peninsula

Kristin Vekasi, a professor in the Department of Political Science and the School of Policy and International Affairs at the University of Maine, will give a lecture titled “Prospects for Peace on the Korean Peninsula.” The talk will be held in 120 Little Hall and is based on Vekasi’s research and travels as a fellow through Bridging the Divide, a program run by the Mansfield Foundation and the Korea Foundation.
The lecture will focus on the key background from the perspectives of major stakeholder countries — North and South Korea, China, the United States, Japan and Russia. Topics will include nuclear diplomacy, the Trump-Kim summit and future prospects for peace on the Korean Peninsula.
