The JoongAng Ilbo’s annual international symposium, the JoongAng Ilbo-CSIS Forum, marks its 10th anniversary this year.  
 
Due to the new normal brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a Washington-based foreign policy think tank, and the Korea Peace Foundation will for the first time hold the forum virtually on Dec. 15.    
 
The U.S. presidential election last month resulted in a historic voter turnout, overcoming obstacles created by the pandemic and deepening political divisions. U.S. President-elect Joe Biden and South Korean President Moon Jae-in in their first phone call expressed their intentions to strengthen the Korea-U.S. alliance and forecasted fresh hope for the two countries’ relations.  
 
The forum's theme is "Morning in America: The ROK-U.S. Alliance After the Election." Renowned national security analyst Graham Allison, a Douglas Dillon professor of government at Harvard University, former U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and other current and former American officials and scholars will discuss the South Korea-U.S. alliance after the U.S. election, the implications of the Sino-U.S. competition and restoring cooperation between South Korea, the United States and Japan.
 
The sessions will be streamed live beginning at 9 a.m. over the CSIS and JTBC YouTube channels, as well as the JoongAng Ilbo’s Facebook page. We look forward to your interest.  


Time: Tuesday, Dec. 15, from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. 
 
U.S. participants: Graham Allison, professor of government at Harvard University; Victor Cha, CSIS senior adviser and Korea chair; Bonnie Glaser, CSIS senior adviser for Asia and director of the China Power Project; Michael Green, CSIS senior vice president for Asia and Japan chair; John Hamre, president and CEO of CSIS; former U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy; and Sue Mi Terry, CSIS senior fellow and Korea chair.
 
Korean participants: Former Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan; former Ambassador to Japan Shin Kak-soo; former Ambassador to China Shin Jung-seung; former Ambassador to the United States Ahn Ho-Young; former Foreign Minister Yu Myung-hwan; former Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se; former Foreign Minister Yoon Young-kwan; former Ambassador to Russia Wi Sung-lak; Chung Jae-ho, international relations professor at Seoul National University; and Hong Seok-hyun, chairman of JoongAng Holdings and the Korea Peace Foundation.
