Establishing Triangular Talks among
Washington, Beijing, and Seoul
This event is part of KEI's Academic Symposium program, and will take place at the International Studies Association Conference in Baltimore, Maryland.
All papers in this Korea Economic Institute sponsored panel will concentrate on the changing prospects for US-Sino-ROK talks on North Korea and security in Northeast Asia. These triangular talks are a high priority for Seoul, and debates about going forward expose different perspectives in the three capitals. The five papers break down the triangle into how thinking in one capital is focusing on the state of relations in the remaining pair of countries. Two panelists from Seoul will set the foundation to be followed by one from Beijing and two US specialists. The discussant will compare their views after reading the papers of the five authors.
