Jeju Island has been host to numerous heads of state, including Premier Gorbachev, President Clinton and Prime Minister Koizumi. As the trend has continued, Jeju's international profile as an "Island of World Peace" has risen, and the first Jeju Peace Forum was held in 2001. In the final proclamation of the forum, it was suggested that a separate peace institute be founded on the island, and ground was broken for the Jeju International Peace Center two years later in 2003. The Jeju Peace Forum has been held regularly on a biennial basis ever since, and the Jeju Peace Institute remains committed to furthering peace studies and promoting regional cooperation.
