[7-A] Possibilities and Conditions of East Asia Peace Community Ⅰ
동아시아평화공동체의 가능성과 조건 Ⅰ

[Jeju Special Self-Governing Province & Korean Council for Reconciliation and Cooperation(KCRC)]

While the North Korean nuclear issue still remains an unresolved task in East Asia, security issues related to terrorism and the proliferation of nuclear arms have become more serious worldwide. To resolve these problems, the global community needs more communication and exchanges based on a multilateral cooperative system, instead of the individual security policies of each country.
To establish a new leadership to resolve the ever worsening security issues, this session will examine the interests of countries neighboring the Korean peninsula and explore the means to realize multilateral cooperation. It will also scrutinize the Korean issue in the context of international relations, that is, how the issues affect neighboring countries and the entire world, and explore the possibility of advances in inter-Korean relations and unification through international cooperation and communication, and the possibility of Korea’s contribution to peace in East Asia and the world through an improvement in inter-Korean ties.

동북아의 오랜 안보과제인 북핵 문제가 상존하는 가운데 세계적으로도 테러, 핵확산 등의 안보문제가 심화되고있다. 이를 해결하기 위해서는 이제까지 각국이 추구했던 독자적인 안보정책을 벗어나 다자협력을 중심으로 한 다양한 안보분야에서의 상호 소통과 교류가 필요하다.
이 세션에서는 심화되는 안보문제를 타개할 새로운 리더십 구축과 실현을 위해 한반도와 그 주변국의 이해관계를 살펴보고 실현 가능한 다자간 협력 방안을 모색해 보고자 한다. 또 한반도 문제가 동북아 주변국, 나아가 전 세계와 어떤 영향을 주고 받는지, 국제관계 속에서 한반도 문제를 고찰해 보고 국제적 협력과 소통을 통한 남북관계 진전과 통일, 역으로 남북관계 진전과 변화를 통한 동북아, 세계평화 기여의 실현가능성을 진단해 보고자 한다.
