Wednesday, June 6, 2018 — The KF-VUB Korea Chair and CSIS Korea Chair invite you to a panel discussion and Q&A session about recent and upcoming developments on the Korean Peninsula, including the scheduled summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, two inter-Korean summits between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Kim, and Kim's two visits to China. The event will take place on 14 June at 16:30, so probably right in the wake of the Trump-Kim summit. Journalists present will have the opportunity to engage in the Q&A session, as well as have post-event interviews with our prominent panelists

It conducts policy research and discussions on a wide range of areas including nuclear weapons and WMD, trade, finance, cyber security, counter-terrorism, climate change and science and technology, among others.
