During April 11-13, 2023, the Korea Project convened the 4th Korean Security Summit at Harvard. Our theme of “Korea – An Oracle of Global Trends” continued the exploration of how quickly various Korea-related functional issues play out with global implications. This year, we aimed to provide unique Korea-connected insights into global trends ranging from bolstering deterrence to navigating increasing control of critical technologies like chips to curbing cybercriminals’ revenue generation from crypto theft. Day 1 began with Opening Remarks by KIM Gheewhan (President, Korea Foundation), Eric Rosenbach (Co-Director, Belfer Center), and Prof. Nicholas Harkness (Director, Korea Institute) to formally announce the establishment of a new endowment fund for the Korea Project.
The Honorable Dr. PARK Jin (Minister of Foreign Affairs, ROK) delivered Congratulatory Remarks. Top researchers of Korean security issues, senior ROK and U.S. practitioners, and next-generation scholars provided key findings from their respective research work over the course of the Summit. YOU Kijun (Consul General, ROK Consulate General in Boston) delivered Closing Remarks. Through the annual Summit series, the Korea Project continues to advance its mission of growing Korean security studies at Harvard and beyond.
The Belfer Center’s Korea Project acknowledges the generous support of the Korea Foundation.
