The rehabilitation of Infrastructure in North Korea through inter-Korean cooperation on infrastructure is not a simple issue but a complicated one. It is necessary to consider various aspects of inter-Korean cooperation on infrastructure including not only economic aspects but also political and military aspects that could affect
inter-Korean cooperation on infrastructure. This study aims to suggest policy directions for inter-Korean cooperation on infrastructure. The study consists of eight chapters. The first chapter discusses the background and need of the study together with research objectives and methods. This study focuses on transportation and energy sectors.
In Chapter 2, basic concepts of an integrated approach are suggested. The concept of an integrated inter-Korean cooperation on infrastructure consists of two elements. The first is setting up priorities in infrastructure cooperation. It means building hierarchy in infrastructure cooperation. The second is building a horizontal network in infrastructure cooperation. Priority setting and networking in infrastructure cooperation constitute key ingredients in an integrated inter-Korean cooperation.
Priorities in inter-Korean cooperation on infrastructure can be discerned through the considerations of the following two dimensions. The first is "macro aspects"in inter-Korean cooperation on infrastructure. This means that international cooperation on infrastructure development in Northeast Asia and economic integration in the Korean peninsula are two important macro-level considerations when setting up priorities in inter-Korean cooperation on infrastructure. The second is "micro aspects"in inter-Korean cooperation on infrastructure. Domestic needs on infrastructure development in North Korea by private firms and the governments of two Koreas on inter-Korean economic cooperation constitute micro-level considerations in inter-Korean cooperation on infrastructure.
Horizontal networking in infrastructure development means networking between infrastructure projects, networking between various actors such as governments, international organizations and private firms. This network approach can maximize the effects of project implementation and minimize related costs. (The rest is omitted.)
