LIVE STREAM: How Korea Transformed the Cold War

Samuel Wells, Cold War Fellow, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. Moderated by Matt Abbott.

How Korea Transformed the Cold War

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the start of the Korean War, provoking fresh attention to the legacy of the “Forgotten War” in the United States. One key legacy of the war is how it affected the Cold War and militarized the competition between the United States and Soviet Union in the following decades. How did the Korean War shape this relationship, and what lessons can policymakers learn from the legacy of the Korean War that are relevant to recent efforts to engage in diplomacy with North Korea?
