Korea 1945


Korea

This committee will explore from a Korean perspective the forces resulting in the unintentionally long-lasting division of Korea. The time between World War II and the Korean War was a dynamic and uncertain one, with personalities and movements migrating and flowing in no certain direction. This crisis will be divided into two committees, one with individuals initially residing in the North of the country, and one in the South, simultaneously wrestling for control, battling external influence, reforming a colonized region, and attempting to unify a people.

Committees:

  • Seoul
  • Pyongyang
