DEADLINE: Korea-U.S. Journalists Exchange

Event Date: 
April 19, 2018

The East-West Center's annual Korea-United States Journalists Exchange normally sends six to eight Korean journalists to the United States and six to eight U.S. journalists to South Korea to meet with government and business leaders, academics, non-governmental organizations and other members of the community. The program seeks to introduce journalists to the political, security, economic, cultural and social issues of each country. Open to working print, online and broadcast journalists in the U.S. and Korea with a minimum of five years' experience. Deadline is Apr 19, 2018.

This 13th Exchange, July 8-17, 2018, will take journalists to explore how the stress of the North Korea nuclear crisis affects US-South Korea relations. A major anticipated event is the unprecedented meeting between North Korea’s President Kim Jong Un and President Donald J. Trump in May. There will likely be other relevant but as yet unknown developments between now and July.

Following these study tours, all of the journalists will convene via web/video conferencing for a final dialogue at the East-West Center in Honolulu and at the Korea Press Foundation in Seoul to report on their travel experiences and to exchange opinions on how media coverage of US-Korea issues can be improved.
