Abstract

The debate in South Korea over the government’s engagement policy toward North Korea (the so-called “sunshine” policy) did not start with Pyongyang’s recent admission that it has been secretly pursuing a nuclear weapons program in violation of multiple international commitments. But the evolution of the debate will be an important determinant of how the South Korean and broader international response to this latest North Korean challenge ultimately ends. This report provides a framework for viewing South Korean responses to this challenge. It examines the South Korean debate over policies toward the North, analyzes the sources of controversy, and assesses the debate’s implications for South Korea and the United States.
