Kim Koo Forum on Korea Current Affairs

The Kim Koo Forum on Korea Current Affairs was established in academic year 2004-2005 with the generous support of the Kim Koo Foundation, and aims to supplement and enhance Harvard’s existing Korean studies program by inviting experts in both academic and policy circles in the fields of diplomacy, security, cultural relations, and human rights to address some of the pressing issues facing the U.S. and the two Koreas today. The Kim Koo Forum on Korea Current Affairs frequently collaborates with other schools, departments, and centers across Harvard to bring speakers on a wide range of current affairs topics related to Korea.

Speakers at the Kim Koo Forum have included U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, former R.O.K. President Kim Dae-Jung, U.S., Fletcher School Dean Stephen Bosworth, among other distinguished scholars, diplomats and professionals.
