[2-A] Pioneers of Jeju Forum: Recasting and Forecasting|제주포럼의 선구자들: 회고와 전망

[East Asia Foundation]

In June 2001, former top leaders of major countries, political leaders, great scholars, and experts had gathered to hold the 1st “Jeju Peace Forum” in Jeju, designated as an island of peace, to commemorate the 1st anniversary of inter-Korean Summit and to realize peace and prosperity in Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia. Jeju Forum, the official name of which was revised and expanded to “Jeju Forum for Peace & Prosperity” in May 2011, has invited numerous domestic and foreign political leaders, world renowned scholars and experts for in-depth discussions on major regional issues, playing its role as the incubator of ideas for peace and prosperity in East Asia. Celebrating the 10th Jeju Forum, this session invites honorable guests who have contributed a lot to the establishment and activities of the Jeju Forum to recast the past of and forecast the future of the Jeju Forum.

2001년 6월, 평화를 염원하는 주요 국가의 전직 수반, 정치지도자, 석학 및 전문가들이 평화의 섬 제주에서 남북정상회담 1주년을 기념하고 한반도 및 동북아 평화와 번영을 구현하기 위한 제1회 ‘제주평화포럼’을 개최하였습니다. 2011년 5월 ‘평화와 번영을 위한 제주포럼’으로 공식명칭을 확대 개정한 제주포럼은 국내외 정치지도자들과 세계적인 석학 및 전문가들을 초청, 역내 주요 이슈들에 대한 심도 있는 토론을 통해 동아시아 지역 평화와 번영을 위한 아이디어의 산실 역할을 충실히 수행해 왔습니다. 2015년 제10회 제주포럼을 맞이하여 제주포럼의 탄생과 그 간의 활동에 크게 기여한 분들을 모시고 제주포럼이 지금까지 걸어온 길과 향후 나아가야 할 방향을 조명하는 시간을 갖고자 합니다.
