What is going on in South Korea? What is the significance of the discussion on Japan, the global pivotal state, reunification of the Korean peninsula, and North Korean human rights by President Yoon Suk Yeol during his speech for the 105th March 1st Independence Movement Day? South Korea and the United States just started their large annual Freedom Shield military exercise on March 4. How would North Korea react? 

To address these very important questions, we bring together three top Korea experts. Join us on March 7 to find out their answers to these questions. 

Scott A. Snyder is senior fellow for Korea studies and director of the program on U.S.-Korea policy at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).  Mr. Snyder is the author of The United States-South Korea Alliance: Why It May Fail and Why It Must Not (December 2023), coeditor of North Korea's Foreign Policy: The Kim Jong-un Regime in a Hostile World (January 2023) with Kyung-Ae Park, author of South Korea at the Crossroads: Autonomy and Alliance in an Era of Rival Powers (January 2018), coauthor of Domestic Constraints on South Korean Foreign Policy  (January 2018) with Geun Lee, Young Ho Kim, and Jiyoon Kim, and coauthor of The Japan-South Korea Identity Clash: East Asian Security and the United States (May 2015) with Brad Glosserman.
