In the 21st century, China and the US are pushing their own unique visions of the world order: the Belt and Road Initiative and the Into-Pacific Strategy, respectively. Korea is very uniquely positioned in terms of geo-politics and the new world order, so that even the Korean peninsula has a potential to influence the two conflicting world visions with rising economic and cultural power. 
This roundtable will invite several experts on this issue with different angles and include a keynote speech by Dr. Jihwan Hwang at the University of Seoul, Korea whose expert knowledge is on US policy and Korea.
