An article by the Korea Times highlighted Korean reunification efforts at the 2017 Global Peace Convention.
Scholars, experts and advocates, significantly from the six-party nations convened during the convention to underscore the importance of Korean reunification for global peace, as well as push forward approaches to reunification.
Among them was Global Peace Foundation Chairman Dr. Hyun Jin Preston Moon who emphasized the need for civic society engagement. "Maintaining the status quo is not an option. A new approach is needed that moves beyond the outdated Cold War framework and engages the Korean people and their neighbors in shaping their own destiny."
Dr. Edwin Feulner, founder of the Heritage Foundation, and long-time Korea expert has also supported the efforts to draw grassroots engagement towards reunification.
