Event Description

October 1, 2023 marks the 70th anniversary of the mutual defense treaty between the United States and the Republic of Korea. Over the last seven decades, the alliance has weathered a host of evolving and enduring challenges. However, the United States and South Korea now face new tasks and challenges: the creation of a new Nuclear Consulting Group; the rise of U.S.-Korea-Japanese trilateral cooperation; and growing confrontation with Beijing, Moscow, and Pyongyang. What are American opinions on the alliance’s role in addressing these issues? Where do American priorities lie for the Indo-Pacific? How do Americans view U.S.-Korea relations today?

Please join KEI for a discussion of the issues impacting the U.S.-Korea alliance at 70 and the results of its fourth annual survey on American attitudes toward the Korean Peninsula.

You can access the full survey report here – 


KEI’s 2023 Report on American Attitudes Toward the Korean Peninsula summarizes results from a survey commissioned by KEI and conducted by YouGov from August 22nd to August 29th, 2023.

The goal of the report is to explore the perceptions of Americans on the relationship with South Korea, the challenges presented by North Korea, and how the US should manage its relationship with the peninsula. This has been explored through direct questions concerning specific trade and military alliances in the region as well as how South and North Korea more generally fit into global international relations.

YouGov surveyed 1,000 respondents who were nationally representative of adults (18+) in the US. YouGov collected an additional oversample of 177 Americans who specifically follow international news, to ensure a sample size of over 500 such respondents across the main and oversample. 316 respondents also indicate specifically following Asia-Pacific (APAC) news.
