3. Peace Foundation

The Peace Foundation is a private research institute established in 2004 to bring permanent peace, stability, and unification to the Korean Peninsula which suffered colonization of Japan in 1909-1945 and was divided into two countries by the great powers shortly after the liberation. In addition, millions of people lost their lives during the Korean War - the Cold War in the region - which has affected the relationship between the two Korea through conflicts and competitions in hostilities for more than half a century. The Peace Foundation aims to resolve such pain and suffering, and to establish peace and unification between North and South Korea.
