In the Jeju Forum 2011, the Korea DMZ Council convenes a forum for debate on the theme of “International Cooperation for Peaceful and Ecological Conservation and Utilization of the DMZ”. The DMZ is an area where mutual interests of the North and South Korea are
inevitably intertwined politically, militarily, economically, environmentally, culturally and in all other realms of interests. Therefore, establishing exchanges and cooperation in the DMZ embodies a significant meaning that could trigger ripple effect for exchanges and cooperation as well as reunification to ensue over the whole peninsula. Through this forum, the Korea DMZ council hopes to reassess the intrinsic value of the DMZ which is recognized exclusively as a symbol of division and separation and furthermore to discuss on employing the DMZ in building peace settlements on the Korean peninsula and promoting mutual prosperity in Northeast Asia. Moreover, much discussion on constructing framework and measures for international cooperation and network in various fields is anticipated, particularly in the areas of security, ecology, civil society, and more.
- What is the peaceful and ecological value of the DMZ?
- With the cooperation of the international community for the peaceful and ecological conservation and utilization of the DMZ, how could the peaceful coexistence and mutual prosperity be fostered on the peninsular and Northeast Asian level?

코리아DMZ협의회는 2011년 제주포럼에서“DMZ의 평화ㆍ생태적이용ㆍ보전을 위한 국제협력”이라는 주제의 토론회를 개최합니다. DMZ는 정치, 군사, 경제, 환경, 문화 등 모든 분야에서 필연적으로 남북한의 상호 이해관계가 얽혀있는 지역입니다. 따라서 DMZ에서의 교류협력은 남북한 전체의 교류협력과 통일의 물꼬를 트는 중대한 의미를 가지고 있습니다. 코리아DMZ협의회는 이번 회의를 통해 분단의 상징으로만 알려져 있는 DMZ의 가치를 재평가하고 한반도 평화정착과 동북아 공동번영에 DMZ를 활용하는 방안을 논의하고자합니다. 특히 안보, 생태, 시민사회 등 다양한 분야에서 국제적 협력방안 및 네트워크 구성에 관해 논의하고자 합니다.
- DMZ의 평화ㆍ생태적 가치는 무엇인가?
- 어떻게 국제사회와 협력하여 DMZ의 평화ㆍ생태적 이용ㆍ보전을 통해 한반도 및 동북아차원에서 상생과 공영을 증진시킬 것인가?
