Non-Traditional Security Issues in North Korea

This concluding chapter challenges the traditional belief that diplomats should ignore the internal affairs of states in order to preserve international stability and posits that the lack of internal justice may actually increase international disorder. Regarding states as unitary rational actors—with the capacity to coerce the behavior of the other actors—misses alternative explanations for the behavior of statesmen, leads to the adoption of self-fulfilling worst-case-scenario planning, is inherently confrontational, and contributes to the likelihood of the emergence of a traditional security dilemma whereby an increase in one state’s military capabilities is automatically considered a threat to the security of its neighbors.
