‘How to Avoid War with North Korea’
Frederick Carriere, a research professor and senior fellow at the Maxwell School, recently wrote an article for International Politics and Society. Entitled ‘How to avoid war with North Korea,’ it offers several means of doing just that, avoiding international conflict.
“Despite the inevitable disappointment felt after North Korea’s latest missile test on 29 August, South Korea must patiently continue to foster peace on the peninsula through engagement,” Carriere offered. “It needs to reverse the antagonistic strategy of the preceding administration. Instead of undercutting North Korea’s relations with the international community, South Korea should demonstrate its intention – and unique capacity within the permissible scope of existing UN sanctions – to be helpful to North Korea in normalising its international relations overall, and with the United States in particular.”
