The New Cold War in Northeast Asia
and the Civil Interpretation on ‘Threat’ 

Shift from National Security towards Civil Safety

The Second International Workshop for Peace and Disarmament in the Asia-Pacific Region, <The New Cold War in Northeast Asia and the Civil Interpretation on ‘Threat’: Shift from National Security towards Civil Safetywill be held. The First International Workshop in 2010 on <For Civilian Control of the Security Sector> sought the ways moving towards peace and disarmament in the Asia Pacific region for the peace movements in South Korea, Japan, China and the US. 

The Second International Workshop will raise questions such as “what really threats to the civil safety? Who defines the claimed threat? How much information is shared among the public to make a security/threat judgment?” And it will also reinterpret the causes and solutions for military and diplomatic conflicts in the Northeast Asia including nuclear issues, arms races, confrontations between North and South Korea and the relations between the US and China in the civil point of view. The speakers from South Korea, the US, Japan and China will participate and share the strategies and activities of each country at the workshop.
