The division of the Korean peninsula is not only a continuing threat to regional peace and stability but a global flashpoint. On a human level, the post-war division has separated families and led to extreme personal hardships among the North Korean population. This significant forum with leading U.S. policymakers and religious leaders, and Korean religious leaders who recently visited North Korea, will highlight recent North-South Korea multi-faith exchanges as a key component of track-two citizen diplomacy. The forum will advance consideration of public-private sector partnerships for humanitarian relief and will further multi-faith engagement in peace building on the Korean Peninsula.
