Space is Limited. RSVPs are Required.
In many ways, 2017 ushers in a new era for US-Japan-Korea relations. The whirlwind election of 2016 for the United States and the recent impeachment of South Korean President Park Geun-hye put all three countries in a position where cooperation has rarely been more important. For this new paradigm, new ideas are needed from new places.
Far from being inexperienced, today’s young generation is perhaps better prepared than any to carry the torch of US-Asia relations and policy. Thanks to cultural and academic exchange programs, the Internet, and immigration trends, young leaders of today are more knowledgeable about world affairs than ever.
On January 5, 2017 International Student Conferences (ISC) and Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA (SPFUSA) will provide the voice of future leaders for U.S.-Japan-Korea cooperation.
The student leaders and senior experts will discuss important, current-day topics directly relevant to the US, Japan and Korea. The fourth annual Symposium will demonstrate to the larger audience the ability of the younger generation to engage in a productive dialogue on U.S.-Japan-Korea relations, including ideas for improving trilateral cooperation.
