Opportunities for U.S.-ROK Alliance Cooperation: New Issues on the Agenda
October 14, 2009
The “Joint Vision for the Alliance of the United States of America and the Republic of Korea,” released by Presidents Barack Obama and Lee Myung-bak on June 16, 2009, forged a new agenda for the U.S.-ROK alliance extending to cooperation on common challenges beyond traditional security. Earlier this month, The Asia Foundation’s Center for U.S.-Korea Policy and the Brookings Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies presented a seminar at the Brookings Institute in Washington, D.C., that assessed the opportunities for expanding the U.S.-ROK alliance partnership on such newly-emerging issues as pandemics, counter-terrorism, and space cooperation. Speakers included James L. Schoff, Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis; Kevin Shepard, Kyungnam University; and Clay Moltz, Naval Postgraduate School. Their presentation abstracts are available for download.
