Auburn University’s Korea Corner will host a panel discussion titled "The North Korean Conflict: Where Are We Headed" on Nov. 9, from 6-7:30 p.m., in the Sciences Center Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

"There is perhaps no topic that is more discussed or consequential in the world of American geopolitical affairs or more broadly, at the moment, than the state of the relationship between the United States and the North Korean regime," said Suhyun Suh, coordinator of the Korea Corner.

The discussion will foster a deeper understanding of the history and implications of the conflict on national security, politics and the economy.

Featured panelists include Hyeongwoo Kim, professor of economics, Auburn University; William B. Brown, adjunct professor, Georgetown University School of Foreign Service; and Lawrence Grinter, retired professor of Asian Studies, Department of International Security Studies, Air War College, Maxwell Air Force Base.

A question-and-answer session led by moderator Matthew Clary, visiting professor in Auburn’s Department of Political Science, will follow the panelists’ opening statements.

The Korea Corner operates within Auburn University Outreach through the Office of Professional and Continuing Education. The Korea Corner provides educational resources and experiences designed to meet the changing needs of citizens in a global society and strengthen the connection of members of the Korean community to American culture and society.
