2020 World Peace Academic ConferenceSpecial thanks to: Frank Kaufmann, Gordon Anderson, Robert Schairer, Ken Sohn In the warm glow of World Peace Summit 2020 at the spacious Kintex Convention Center just outside of Seoul on February 4 and 5, 2020 the Professors World Peace Academy brought together serious, cheerful, and very varied scholars with centuries of combined academic and field experience. The corona pandemic raging in the world at large did not faze the serene participants from meeting to share hearts and minds. The theme of “peace” and how to achieve this global vision was altogether timely. Political opinions differed but the overall goal of our striving did not. Presenters hailed from the USA, Senegal, France, Korea, Luxembourg, Austria and Jordan. Eleven talks lasted two full days, concluding with the Inauguration of IAAP (International Association of Academicians for Peace, signed by over a dozen representative leaders. PWPA has in fact done more for world peace over the last nearly fifty years than meets the eye. Who actually ended the Cold War? If you ask the man on the street in Moscow, they’ll say, “Blue jeans and the Beatles.” That’s fun; ‘70s rock-n-roll indeed rolled from every street corner after the liberation of the Soviet Union. But more deeply, it was not military, nor economic, nor cultural events that clinched the amazingly peaceful reconciliation of 1991. It was none other than the combined work of PWPA scholars such as Morton Kaplan (rest his soul), great leaders such as the Gipper (Ronald Reagan), the wisdom and foresight of Mikhail Gorbachev, but above all Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s careful, prayerful, long-term strategy that brought fruition through a host of initiatives on all fronts, stretching back to 1945. The wide spectrum of highly individual, personally engaged, creatively insightful professors like Joseph Terwilliger who met Kim Jong-un, Tom Ward and Bill Lay who crafted CAUSA, Rima Salah from Jordan who understood both sides in the Mideast, Emmanuel Dupuy and Oumar Ndongo whose lives are devoted to the rise of Africa, Erna Hennicot-Schoepges former Luxembourg Member of Parliament, Cole Durham an expert on Constitutional law, and Werner Fasslabend and Walter Feichtinger who lived and dealt with the intense showdown of East and West—all shared gripping personal stories and imparted timeless wisdom and advice with several hundred likewise educated colleagues from around the world. Combining the efforts of UTI (Unification Thought Institute), CAUSA and VOC (Victory Over Communism) movement, the following PWPA scholars lectured: ___________________ 2020 World Peace Academic Conference (Section 2, Feb. 4–5, Kintex Mall) Dr. Thomas J.

    We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned
