Toward a Peace Process on the Korean Peninsula: Feasible Next Steps

June 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+2
DGAP, Rauchstrasse 17, 10787 Berlin

After the Hanoi Summit between North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump in February 2019, talks between North Korea and the US have stalled. At the summit, the US side brushed aside the possibility of setting up a roadmap toward denuclearisation and a peace treaty on the Korean Peninsula. Instead, the US Administration put forward a lop-sided deal involving sanctions relief in return for full denuclearisation. While all sides declared their commitment to diplomatic solutions, a return to the negotiation table seems difficult at this stage.

During the panel discussion, key experts from South Korea and Europe will discuss feasible steps that might help to resume a diplomatic rapprochement. They will explore possible, alternative consultation formats – such as working groups of denuclearization and conflict resolution experts – which could be used to negotiate a peace process as well as the underlying risks of such formats. We will also focus which role the EU could play in resolution efforts in the foreseeable future.
