Moynihan Korean Peninsula Affairs Center presents: Stephen Costello - U.S. Policy Toward the Korean Peninsula After the Election

Stephen Costello, Policy Analyst, Syracuse University Alumnus

The U.S. presidential election comes just at the moment when South Korea is beginning its year-long run-up to a no less consequential presidential election. Debates in both countries reflect the fears and hopes of politicians, scholars and journalists. With these elections and debates as background, what is at stake, for whom, and why should we care? Mr. Costello will explore bureaucratic, ideological and political aspects of current presidential politics in Korea. He will also argue that the approach taken to Korea policy by Washington, and South Korea's own decisions about its role in Northeast Asia, are both critical for anyone involved in policy-making in the next decade.

STEPHEN COSTELLO is a policy analyst with 20 years of experience in Korea and Northeast Asia as political consultant, policy analyst, think tank program director, and tech-sector business consultant. Mr. Costello specializes in policy and politics in Korea and Northeast Asia as well as U.S. policy and policy-making toward the region.

Light lunch provided.
