President Yeon-Cheon OH Stresses Confucian Values at Stanford

SNU President Yeon-Cheon Oh gave a special lecture at Stanford University on the theme of ‘Civil consensus for universal values in East Asia’ on February 7. President Oh said that historical reconciliation and rectification of past wrongs is needed to build faith among East Asian nations. East Asian states should respect the common values of humanity, he said, and East Asian intellectuals should think alongside other world citizens. He emphasized the role of universities to produce knowledge that can overcome national barriers, and that university scholars should pursue the collective interest of the East Asia region and humanity. President Oh’s lecture was part of a series of lectures by the Stanford Asia Pacific Research Center (APARC).
