south-korea-239106_1280Centre for Asian Studies continues cycle of events under the title “Time for Asia”. The second event will take place on the 28th of November, at 11:15, in Donelaicio str. 52-322. The presenter will be visiting professor from Korea Foundation Dr. Yu-Ree Kim holding a lecture The Two Koreas in Post-Cold War era: Cooperation and Crisis.

This lecture will go through the process and changes of the North-South relations focusing on the 25 years of economic cooperation tryouts which finally came to an end in 2016 due to the worsening North Korea nuclear problem, in the regional context of Northeast Asia. What can we learn from these 25 years in order to better predict the future situation in the Korean Peninsula? Can we expect more tensions and even war, or the opposite – unification and peace?

Dr. Yu-Ree Kim graduated from Seoul National University and later worked at Research Institute for North Korea and Northeast Asia Development where she analyzed North Korean economy and North-South relations.

“Time for Asia” is a new cycle of events, organised by the Centre for Asian Studies and aimed to present contemporary issues and topics in the fields of Asian politics, society and economics.
