[JEJU FORUM] Global Advisory Committee evaluates flurry of summits

June 25,2018
The Jeju Forum’s Global Advisory Committee, a group of experts and advisers from China, Korea, Japan, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Australia and the United States, will meet for its inaugural session this year.

Their session will focus the implications of the series of summits between the leaders of the two Koreas, the United States and China.
Members of the committee, including John Ikenberry, professor of politics and international affairs at Princeton University, Yan Xuetong, the dean of the Institute of International Relations at Tsinghua University, Masao Okonogi, professor emeritus at Keio University and Chang Dal-joong, professor emeritus of Seoul National University, will speak at “Summit Diplomacy: What Comes after KJU’s Meetings with Xi, Moon, and Trump? – Its Global and Regional Implications.”

During the session, scheduled from 5:10 p.m. to 6:40 p.m. on June 27 at Halla Hall at the ICC Jeju, the members will analyze whether the summits between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, South Korean President Moon Jae-in, U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping have proven useful in achieving individual objectives; whether the pledges made at the summits are credible; the challenges to implementing these promises and what role Japan may play in all of this.

“The Global Advisory Committee is to devise strategies to prepare the forum as an international dialogue set apart from other regional forums,” said Suh Chung-ha, executive chairman of the Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity.
