Cyberspace is a double-edged sword. On the one hand it offers the potential for greater communication and deeper exchange beyond the limitations of physical space. On the other hand, cyberspace is open to manipulation which can make it an extremely unstable, and potentially misleading, medium for communication.

Cyberspace is growing at a rapid rate in East Asia. Korea, China and Japan are the center for IT globally and feature one of the highest concentrations of highly literate citizens in the world,. We ask in this seminar whether future agreements regarding governance and accuracy in information within cyberspace could be the key to integration and peaceful development in East Asia? Might there be room for innovation in East Asia concerning network neutrality and the next generation of cybersecurity that could serve as a model for the rest of the world?

We invite the audience to join us in an open discussion concerning how network neutrality, distance learning, diplomacy and the use of big data can be further developed in East Asia as a means of confidence building.
