The U.S-Korea Institute at SAIS, the Sejong Society of Washington, DC , and the Korean American Sharing Movement (KASM) invite you to participate in a unique opportunity to engage with North Korean defector students. The students currently attend universities in South Korea and are visiting Washington, D.C. to participate in the 2015 Washington Leadership Program organized by KASM.
This simulation assumes reunification has already occurred on the Korean Peninsula. Sejong Society and KASM participants will be divided into five groups representing a specific issue within a unified Korean government: Education, Internal Security, Foreign Affairs, Economic Development, and Domestic Politics. Each group will be responsible for identifying various problems and challenges that a unified government might encounter, propose solutions, and present their final ideas to all participants. In the RSVP form below, please indicate your two preferred groups.
This event will allow participants to experience first-hand the unique challenges involved in building a new society through integration and careful planning, and to learn strategies for building consensus.We encourage innovative thinking in developing solutions to potential challenges in a post-reunification scenario.
