Inter-Korean relations largely depend on the progress in nuclear negotiations between North Korea and the US, which have been stalemated after the failed Hanoi Summit between the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and the US President Donald Trump. In the meantime, the current South Korean government pursues pro-engagement policies towards Pyongyang, continued from the past progressive governments under Kim Dae Jung and Roh Moo Hyun.
We invite Dr Jin-hyang Kim, a former head of the Kaesong Industrial Complex (KIC) in North Korea to learn about inter-Korean economic projects, past and present. Jay Song, Convenor of Korean Studies at the Asia Institute, discusses what ‘Peace Economy’ means, and whether it is possible under the current domestic and international environments.
