The Korean Peninsula is a fault-line that separates the two Koreas. Until the end of World War II, Korea was a single political entity whose territory somehow coincided with the Korean Peninsula.
Since the Armistice Agreement ended the Korean War in 1953, the northern division of the peninsula has been governed by the People’s Republic of Korea, while the southern portion has been governed by the Republic of Korea.
Following Ambassador Kye-Duk’s delivery, which will also touch on Korea’s bilateral relations with Liberia, a roundtable panel consisting Professor Dr. Jonathan Taylor, Vice President and Executive Dean of the Graduate School at the University of Liberia and Professor Monie R. Captan, former Foreign Minister of Liberia, will shed more light on the discussion.
An interactive session will follow the lecture and therefore afford faculty, students and members of the public an opportunity to ask question or comment on the specifics of the lecture.
The lecture is expected to bring together faculty and students from the University of Liberia and other institutions of higher learning, as well as members of civil society, Government officials, among others.
The event is open to the public and will be moderated by Atty. Norris Tweah.
