2020 EU-ROK Strategic Dialogue

06 November 2020

The 2020 EU-ROK Strategic Dialogue was organised by the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) in cooperation with the Institute of Foreign Affairs and National Security of the Korean National Diplomatic Academy (KNDA) and held on 6 November. Held annually, this was the 7th edition of the Dialogue organised by the two partners. 

Experts from both Europe and South Korea shared analysis on the changing geostrategic context during the time of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in particular on the future of the US-China rivalry and consequences for the Korean Peninsula. The US presidential election's outcome and its consequences in foreign policy terms were assessed thoroughly. The two rounds of discussion led to a technical discussion on non-proliferation and peace-building on the Korean Peninsula and practical recommendations on the role that the EU can play in the area.
