Abstract

This monograph is an explication of the Lee Myung-bak government’s North Korea policy in terms of its underlying historical and theoretical foundation. Although this publication strives to present views representative of the government, it is ultimately the author’s interpretation of the Lee administration’s North Korea policy, rather than the standpoint of the government per se. Overall, when we look at the policy, we can see that it is an attempt to induce North Korea to resolve its nuclear problem (i.e., denuclearization) and to enter the international community as a normal member (i.e., openness) through normalizing relations with the United States and to realize a 3,000 dollar per capita GNP. Thus, the Lee government’s mid- and long-term policy goals are to find a way for both Koreas to achieve mutual benefits and common prosperity by implementing the government’s “Vision 3000 through Denuclearization and Openness.” (The rest omitted)
