Korean Reunification 2017

On 27 July 1953, the Korean peninsula became frozen in time. After a brutal civil war that involved the United States and the Soviet Union, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) and the Democratic Republic of Korea (South Korea) became divided at the 38th parallel. To this day, the border between the two countries is one of the most militarized in the world. This border has not only separated opposing political ideals but also families, and friends. Since the Korean war there has been talk of reuniting the Koreas. The economic, diplomatic, and social implications of reunification would be tremendous for both nations and the global community. This committee will look to resolve those tensions that have been frozen in time. We will seek to answer many questions but will start with the question of whether or not reunification is even possible, and if so, on whose terms? This will be a face paced and exciting crisis committee set in 2017 that will strive to resolve tensions between the two countries. This committee will include representatives from both North and South Korea as well as other major nations.
