Professor Gregg Lambert travelled to South Korea in early March 2012 to participate in a number of public initiatives co-sponsored by Korean partners and publishing companies. Among them is this segment of video interviews on the border with North Korea in which Lambert engages in a discussion of future peace with the public intellectual Taek-Gwang Lee (Kyung Hee University, Seoul).

This interview was realized within the framework of the Perpetual Peace Project, an international research and cultural program of the Syracuse University Humanities Center in partnership with the Slought Foundation (Philadelphia, PA) and the European Union Institutes of Culture, which joins theorists and practitioners in revisiting 21st century prospects for international peace. The project finds its public form in symposia, exhibitions, lectures, as well as a feature film organized around Immanuel Kant’s foundational essay Perpetual Peace: A Philosophical Sketch (1795), which itself takes the form of an international treaty exploring the possibility of permanent peace.
