Michael Schluter, CEO of Relational Peacebuilding Initiatives, will explain how a Korean Peninsula Agriculture Community provides a potential pathway which could lead to eventual reunification of the peninsula. A similar trade agreement between France and Germany in one sector in 1951, set in the context of ‘ever closer union’, started off the journey to the European Union. The presentation will be followed by discussion.

Michael has a PhD in agricultural economics from Cornell and worked for the International Food Policy Research Institute and the World Bank while based in East Africa. He has spent many years developing a framework for public policy distinct from both Western liberalism and Socialist collectivism. His previous peacebuilding work was in South Africa (1986 – 1994), Rwanda after the genocide (1994 – 1999), Sudan (1999 – 2004/5) and Ukraine (2015 – 2017). He has worked on Korean peace issues since 2017.

In November this year, RPI will be publishing its book entitled ‘No Other Way to Peace in Korea? A practical pathway to reunification’. This seminar will introduce some of the key concepts.
