Possible and Desirable? What can the German experience of reunification tell us about Korea?
The Berlin Wall and the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea were powerful and visible symbols of Cold War division in Germany and Korea. Yet whilst Germany was reunified in 1990, Korea remains divided. Recent tensions on the Korean peninsula prompt consideration of the possibility and desirability of Korean reunification. This panel of experts from Monash, Deakin, La Trobe and Melbourne universities examines the prospects for Korean reunification in the light of Germany’s experience. Organised by students from Monash University’s Global Leadership and Advanced Research Program in the Centre for Undergraduate Research Initiative and Excellence, this panel will be recorded for broadcast on ABC Radio National’s Big Ideas program.
