Whither North Korea? Whither Economic Statecraft?

(p.226) 8 Conclusion
Hard Target

This chapter looks back at our findings, measuring them against some of the analytic expectations established in our introduction in Chapter 1. It then asks two speculative questions. First, what if North Korea were to change? How might that affect the conclusions drawn here? Particular consideration is given to economic reform processes. Second, what if the major parties undertook different strategies with respect to North Korea? These questions permit us to engage in some comparisons with other relevant cases, most notably Iran, and to consider a new spate of diplomatic initiatives—including both sanctions and proposals for engagement—introduced in the wake of the fourth nuclear test in early 2016.

Keywords:   nuclear crisis, nuclear weapons, missiles, proliferation, Six-Party Talks, sanctions, inducements, Iran, economic statecraft, economic reform
