Global Peace Leadership Conference, Seoul, Korea 2014

At the beginning of 2014, President South Korean Park Geun-hye addressed the issue of reunification, calling it a “jackpot” for the progress of both countries. In February, she formally established a reunification committee to map out systematic and constructive plans towards reunification. 

President Park’s acknowledgement reflects a changing attitude towards the division of the Korean peninsula. Only a few years ago division was seen as an inevitable and unavoidable reality. Recently, however, reunification has become a viable and more realistic option.


The Global Peace Foundation has been pioneer in advancing reunification through cross-border initiatives and scholarly research since 2010. Its unique, values-based approach to peacebuilding focuses on defining a shared vision for the Korean peninsula rather than on process or methodology.

Furthermore, Global Peace Foundation has generated grass-roots engagement through creative initiatives like the Unification Pledge drive and the Need U Ideas competition. GPF has also been active in creating a coordinated civil society effort through Action for Korea United, a coalition of over 300 NGOs

This year’s theme, “Vision, Principles, and Values for a Reunified Korea” will continue to focus on generating a consensus for a united Korea, and highlight Korea’s role in the Northeast Asian region and world.
