The Korean Peninsula is at a crossroads. South Korea and Japan are bogged down in historical and national security conflicts. Trade friction between the United States and China is expected to continue for some time. Denuclearization talks between Washington and Pyongyang remain stalemated.

Under the theme “Asia Towards Resilient Peace: Cooperation and Integration,” this year’s Jeju Forum for Peace & Prosperity will invite opinion leaders from around the world to exchange views in nearly 70 sessions on five main agenda areas: peace, prosperity, sustainability, diversity and global Jeju.

The forum will see some 5,000 participants including former Secretary of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon; Helen Clark, former prime minister of New Zealand; Heinz Fischer, former president of Austria; Yukio Hatoyama, former prime minister of Japan; and Malcolm Turnbull, former prime minister of Australia.

Date: May 29 to 31, 2019

Venue: International Convention Center Jeju, Seogwipo, Jeju Island

Key Participants: Hong Seok-hyun, chairman of JoongAng Holdings; Moon Chung-in, special adviser to the Korean president for unification and national security; Lee Do-hoon, special representative for Korean Peninsula peace and security affairs; Kurt Campbell, former assistant secretary of state for East Asian and pacific affairs; Robert Gallucci, chief U.S. negotiator for the Geneva Agreed Framework and a distinguished professor of diplomacy at Georgetown University; Joseph Yun, former U.S. special representative for North Korea policy and a senior adviser of the United States Institute of Peace; Graham Allison, Douglas Dillon professor of government at Harvard University; and G.
