Seoul Leadership, Seoul Power: Riding the Korean Wave

About the Lecture: Many around the world are likely to forget the impact of the Korean War and its aftermath, but the Korean people cannot forget. Rather, they continue forward, leading East Asia and the world toward a peaceful resolution to the Korean War and the division of the Korean peninsula. From the peaceful transformative power of the Candlelight Revolution, Korea has stepped forward to change the course of history and to emerge as a political, economic, and cultural leader of East Asia.
