This chapter surveys the activities of US nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) working in North Korea and evaluates their respective contributions and scope as they relate to the promotion of non-traditional security in North Korea. It shows that NGOs are well positioned to play catalytic roles in meeting North Korean human needs and promoting knowledge sharing for North Koreans who are allowed to travel outside North Korea. In addition, the ability of NGOs to be perceived as interlocutors that act independently from government authorities on both sides is a factor that influences their ability to work as intermediaries and catalysts for change in North Korea.

Keywords:   NGO, human needs, North Korea, intermediaries, transformational change
