Strategic dialogue has been a term used increasingly more frequently, both in private and public sectors. Nevertheless, what does "strategic dialogue" exactly mean? How does it differ from a regular "bilateral" or "multilateral" meeting? Is it a formal or informal discussion? How does it compare and contrast to 1.5 and 2-track discussions? Can academics participate in strategic dialogues, or is it a format limited to practitioners, mostly from the field of politics? Who sets the agenda? How is a strategic dialogue organized in practice?
The one-day workshop will examine these and other questions covering the issue of strategic dialogue. The seminar will host speakers who have a rich experience from conducting such strategic dialogues with partners in Asia and, in particular, in both Koreas. The guest speakers will share their expertise and provide hands-on experiences. The seminar will be organized in a hybrid form (partly in person, partly online) and will be held under the Chatham House rule.
