In 1981, the United Nations established September 21 as the International Day of Peace in order to promote the ideals of peace around the world. Several decades earlier, Andrew Carnegie founded the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace with the conviction that war could be eradicated through increased international cooperation and stronger institutions.

Last year, the Carnegie–Tsinghua Center hosted its first International Day of Peace event focused on maintaining peace on the Korean Peninsula. In the year since, formal diplomatic efforts resumed as DPRK leader Kim Jong-un met with presidents Moon Jae-in, Donald Trump, and Xi Jinping, but a solution to the North Korea issue remains elusive. One day after the expected conclusion of the fifth inter-Korean summit, where Kim and Moon are scheduled to meet for the third time, Carnegie–Tsinghua Center Director Paul Haenle will moderate a discussion with Chinese and international experts on the next steps to achieve enduring peace on the Korean Peninsula.

This event will be off the record and held in English.
