On Feb. 14th(Thu.) last week, the Republic of Cuba has become the 193rd state to be recognized by the Republic of Korea, as the two states agreed to establish ambassador-level diplomatic relations with each other.

There will be much discussion on this development, as to its political, economic, and cultural implications. On this occasion, however, the UNA-ROK(UN Association of the Republic of Korea) would like to invite you to participate in an open forum where young students come together and discuss the role of cultural exchanges in diplomacy; namely, how cultural exchanges might sustain, and sometimes, precipitate deeper ties between states and nations.

Particularly, we will give the floor to two researchers on this matter, and take a look at two case studies in Cuba(Central America), and Kazakhstan(Central Asia). 

Lastly, we will open the floor to the audience to discuss 1) the role of cultural exchange when it comes to building sustainable diplomatic relations, 2) what could be expected from newly formed ties between the ROK and the Republic of Cuba, especially given how it might be a showcase for ROK's future ties with the DPRK, and 3) what they believe should be the goals and strategies for international cultural exchange between nations.

Please take a look at the program agenda below. Thank you.
