JPI focuses on policy recommendations to advance understanding and cooperation on the Korean Peninsula as well as throughout East Asia. Our education programs and global outreach are a true reflection of a ceaseless endeavor to uphold the JPI vision. The Jeju Peace Institute was founded with three goals: to promote the vision of Northeast Asia as a region of unity and cooperation, to raise Jeju's stature as an Island of World Peace, and to become a leading organization in peace research and programs throughout Asia and the world. JPI is committed to promote the use of economic-political diplomacy in achieving stable peace. The ultimate goal of the Institute is to become the hub of operations for peace programs on the Korean peninsula and throughout Northeast Asia.
