North Korea’s nuclear efforts pose a serious threat to the region and to international security. Yet efforts to curb North Korea’s nuclear capabilities to date have failed. North Korea’s foreign policy objectives have evolved over the years, with a shift toward military control that encourages militarized solutions to political problems at home and abroad.  The massive economic changes of the past 25 years mean that life chances for all North Koreans are frequently determined by how well they can make use of market opportunities. What impact does this have on North Korean foreign policy? Are the risks of war on the rise as the possibilities for a peaceful resolution to the North-South conflict decrease? What would a smart power-based foreign policy to North Korea look like?
