Abstract
This talk will present research undertaken on the question of Korean peninsula reunification and its impact upon the regional security order. At present, the Asia-Pacific region is in a state of flux as the power of the United States wanes, and that of its superpower rival, China, continues to rise. The presentation outlines the effects that peninsula unification will have on the role of Korea in the future security order and how the major powers: the US, China and Japan will respond to the challenges it raises.
