TCAS Public Evening Lecture, The Korean Peace Process and Civil Society: Towards Strategic Peacebuilding
Join us for the last of this term's TCAS Public Evening Lectures. Venue: Arts Building Room 3074 on Tuesday 3 April, from 6.30pm - 8pm. This public lecture, delivered by Dr Dong-Jin Kim, will review the Korean peace process and the role played by civil society from the perspective of strategic peacebuilding. Will the summit between South and North Korea, and between US and North Korea finally bring peace in the Korean peninsula? The Post-Cold War era witnessed a dramatic rise in breakthroughs for peace processes, including the Korean peninsula, between parties mired in deep-rooted conflict. However, many such processes broke down within a short period of time. During this time, the concept of ‘strategic peacebuilding’ was developed by peace researchers to meet the demand for a sustainable peace. Dr Kim is an Irish Research Council Fellow at the Irish School of Ecumenics, TCD.
