Global Classroom: Lessons for Korea, Two Decades of German Unification
The World Affairs Council, the East Asia Resource Center, and Center for West European Studies at the University of Washington's Jackson School of International Studies, invite you for an evening comparing the reunification of Germany to the potential for Korea's unification, looking at the past, the present, and possibilities for the future.

During the Cold War, democracy and economic prosperity contrasted with authoritarianism and a crumbling infrastructure which characterized the differences between West and East Germany. Similar characteristics are evident in South and North Korea. Today, the economic base of Germany is still firmly centered in the West, while the East continues to struggle with lower GDP and higher unemployment. Yet, despite these economic differences, Germany is a unified, vibrant democracy. Would a reunified Korea face the same situation of democracy throughout the country but economic inequality between South and North? What lessons can be learned from German reunification? Could these apply to a future Korean reunification?
