ABSTRACT

The purpose of this research is to seek a practical alternative for the establishment of the peace regime in the Korean peninsular and Northeast Asia. Given the current situation that the security conflict in the Korean peninsular has been gradually increased and the strategic rivalry in East Asia has been visualized, it would be appropriate to suggest the establishment of the peace regime in the Korean peninsular and Northeast Asia. This paper defines the 'regime' as a frame for the regional order which manages state of war, negative peace and unstable peace, and the 'security regime' as an institutional frame for the achievement and maintenance of the status of Paix Perpetuelle, positive peace and stable peace. Further, this paper suggests that it is more realistic to lay the foundation for the high level institutions such as the security community or the multilateral peace community by establishing a low level institution such as the security regime rather than pursue a direct implementation of the security community. In this regard, this paper maintains that the security regime for Northeast Asia should be a 'Concert regime' which is a democratic-peace Concert, not a Concert of great powers. Therefore, it is conclusive that the Concert of Northeast Asia which is evolved from the Six Party-Talks should be developed as a peace process for the Greater East Asia in conjunction with the Arc of Nuclear-Weapon-Free-Zones.
