"Polish-German Relations since 1945" — Korea-Japan Future Ties to Be Explored in Seminar
German Ambassador to Seoul Hans-Ulrich Seidt in his office

The Polish-German relationship and the Korean-Japanese relationship are both inextricably linked by a complex and traumatic history defined in large part by the Second World War.

But today, all four countries share common democratic values and are deeply embedded in the global market economy.

In addition, Poland and Germany are members of the European Union, a unique political, social and economic project which was established amidst theashes of World War II as well as of NATO.

What lessons might the evolution of postwar Polish-German relations hold for Korean-Japanese relations?

This seminar, organized by the Polish and German embassies in Seoul in partnership with the Asan Institute for Policy Studies, will be held to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the Polish-German Treaty of Good Neighborhood and Friendly Cooperation.

It will explore how Poland and Germany have navigated their complicated history and forged a working partnership.

It will also discuss how lessons gleaned from the Polish-German experience might be applied to current Korean-Japanese relations.

The Polish and German embassies in Seoul and the Asan Institute for Policy Studies cordially invite the Korean media to attend its seminar on Thursday, December 1, 2011 at the Lecture Hall of the Asan Institute for Policy Studies.

The conference will start at 9:30 a.m.and will be held until 5:30 p.m. followed by a reception.

Among others honoured speakers will be Jan Krzysztof Bielecki, former prime minister of the Republic of Poland; and KlausHänsch, former president of the European Parliament, who will discuss with Korean and Japanese participants about the political dimension of the Polish-German relations after World War II.

English translation will be provided. For further information please see the program attached.
