The University of Georgia is hosting a seminar beginning Monday on relations between North and South Korea.

The Oct. 17-20 seminar will feature policymakers and academics from both countries, as well as the United States. UGA officials say the seminar is designed to help the countries work toward peace-building and diplomacy.

It is being hosted by UGA professor Han S. Park, who has worked with the Korean governments since the 1980s to help foster peace between the two countries.

The public can attend the opening session of the seminar Oct. 17 at 9:30 a.m. and the closing session Oct. 20 at 9 a.m. in the UGA Chapel. The rest of the seminar is closed to the public and the media.
