ROK-U.S. Strategic Forum 2021: The Road Ahead after the Biden-Moon Summit

November 15, 2021 • 9:00 am – 2:30 pm EST

Please join us for our 6th annual ROK-U.S. Strategic Forum, our premier international forum that brings together officials, policymakers and experts to discuss issues important to the U.S.-ROK alliance.

This year, experts, scholars and officials will join us for a timely discussion on issues critical to U.S.-Korea relations, including what U.S.-China competition means for the alliance, whether there is a way forward for denuclearization and peace on the Korean Peninsula, and the future of trilateralism and the alliance in the Indo-Pacific region.

This signature event will be co-hosted with the Korea Foundation, a leading organization of Korea's international exchange and public policy initiative.
