ABSTRACT

The purpose of this article is to examine what types of crisis management and negotiation strategies the Korean government should pursue in the denuclearization process of the Korean peninsula. The findings are as follows. First, it is necessary to make political and diplomatic commitments to the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for the security of his regime. Second, North Korea sanctions should remain in place until complete denuclearization. Third, the US-South Korea military cooperation must be reinforced to put pressure on North Kore. Fourth, a ‘win-win’ cooperative negotiation strategy should be used, even if North Korea abandons its nuclear program. The implications of these findings include that South Korea needs to boost strategic and tactical responsiveness in the debates on the dismantlement of North Korea’s nuclear weapons and prepare for crisis management and negotiation strategies to ensure and maximize national interests.
