The Republic of Korea is faced with overwhelming challenges from the current economic collapse, the breakdown of an equitable society under pressure from an aging population and the unequal distribution of wealth and the constant pressure of climate change.

The problems are almost overwhelming, although few want to discuss them. Yet, might there not be some opportunities beneath the surface in Korean know-how, in the Korean culture and in the remarkable vitality of Korean youth? Join us for a open discussion with Emanuel Pastreich, director of the Asia Institute and author of the recent best-selling book, “A Republic of Korea Greater than Koreans imagined.”
