2007 International Conference of History-Related NGOs
 
     The NGOs of various countries around the world have established inter-NGO network and new roles among themselves through the “NGO Exchange and Cooperation Project.”  Also, history-related private organizations of Korea, China, and Japan have made preparations for diverse NGO-network enterprises in order to make a diagnosis of outstanding questions and to seek alternative plans of action.  In particular, domestic history-related NGOs, including the Northeast Asian History Foundation, have continuously conducted ‘Exchange and Cooperation Workshops’ in order to construct an ideal cooperative model between the government and the public.   On the basis of these endeavors, and enthusiastic support from the Northeast Asian History Foundation, approximately 50 private organizations from Korea and abroad will participate in the “2007 International Conference of History-related NGOs” that will be held this September in Seoul.
 
     This Conference will provide an opportunity to examine the various activities, as well as the educational and promotional materials, which organizations worldwide have pursued and promoted.  Participants may apply these lessons in their own fields.  In addition, forums, lectures, exhibitions, performances will be offered to help build an understanding of Northeast Asian history and to facilitate exchange of ideas and materials among the participating organizations. The co-executives of the First International Conference of History-related NGOs are:  Kim, Yong-deok (President of the Northeast Asian History Foundation), Eun-Kyung Park (President of the National YWCA), Peter Li (President of the Global Alliance for Preserving the History of WWII in Asia), and Shinichi Arai (Emeritus Professor of Ibaraki University and Surugadai University).  Migang Yang (International Solidarity Conference of Redress-South Korea, National Co-ordinator) and the heads of each part of operating committees are in charge of specific programs for this Conference. The Conference will be held from Sept. 12th through Sept. 16th.  The events will take place at the Kim Koo Museum, the Seoul City Plaza, and Fruit of Love Hall.  More information about the Conference can be obtained at www.historyngo.org. The First International Conference of History-related NGOs is expected to provide an academic and educational occasion for a large number of NGOs of the world to improve on the current perception of history.  Through this Conference, domestic history-related NGOs will have an opportunity to consider new and creative ways to better achieve the goals of their organizations.
