The theme for the first Korea-America Student Conference held July 5-31,
2008, will be "A New Look at the U.S.-Korea Alliance."
Created due to military necessity, the U.S.-Korea alliance has grown and
evolved over the last fifty years. Today, the Republic of Korea and the
United States work as partners on issues ranging from trade agreements and
nuclear threats to education and technology. Over the next year both Korea
and the US will undergo changes in leadership which could significantly
impact their policies and interactions worldwide. As this alliance continues
to change, KASC will ensure students play an active role as they prepare to
become the next generation of leaders.
This year's Roundtable topics include:
Preparing Global Citizens: Education Focused on International Concerns
>From Yongbyon to Kaesong - The Future of North Korea
Wired for Business: Technology's Role in the US-Korea Alliance
Shaping Regionalism in East Asia: Peace and Security
Although many participants will be Asian Studies and East Asian Studies
majors, this is not a requirement. All types of students from any field and
level of study are welcome at the conference. Knowledge of the Korean
language is not required.
