Korea Economic Institute of America Presents:

China’s High-Volume Korean War Commemoration: A Conversation with Yun Sun, Director of the Stimson Center China Program

Livestreamed Via Zoom

Starts: November, 2nd 2020 EST

Event Description

Join Yun Sun and Mark Tokola for a conversation about China’s unprecedented 70th anniversary commemoration of its entry into the Korean War. Why has China chosen to mark this particular anniversary with a high-profile speech by Xi Jinping, along with new movies and television programs revisiting the Korean War? Yun Sun will explore what China is now saying about the Korean War, who the intended audience might be, and what it might mean for U.S.-China relations and diplomacy towards North Korea.

From 2011 to early 2014, Yun Sun was a Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution where she focused on Chinese national security decision-making processes. From 2008 to 2011, Yun was the China Analyst for the International Crisis Group based in Beijing, specializing on China’s foreign policy towards conflict countries and the developing world. She earned her master’s degree in international policy and practice from George Washington University, as well as an MA in Asia Pacific studies and a BA in international relations from Foreign Affairs College in Beijing.

This event will be livestreamed on Zoom with an interactive Q&A session.
