Seoul, Korea—The fourth World Summit on “Peace, Security and Human Development” concluded with a new assembly of parliamentarians and the return of a historic assembly of scientists.

The final full day of the summit—February 4, 2017—was distinguished by two sessions devoted to the International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace (IAPP), an organization created in 2016 by UPF co-founder Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, and a third session focusing on the 23rd International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences, a project created 45 years ago by Dr. Moon and her husband, the late Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon.

More than 700 participants from 120 nations, including more than 400 parliamentarians, attended the five-day assembly, which took place from February 1 to 5, 2017, in the Lotte Hotel World.
