  About this book  
  In recent years, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) has moved in two seemingly contradictory directions. By admittance of a nuclear weapons programme, its withdrawal from the non-proliferation treaty and finally the twin missile and nuclear tests of 2006 it has become more and more isolated – even alienating its last ally, China, to a great extent. At the same time, North Korea attempted to catch up with the economic reality by legalizing certain market activities and thereby acknowledging the collapse of the centrally-planned economy. In this changing environment, a comparative look at unification issues is most helpful. This book, a joint effort of the Graduate School of Public Administration of Seoul National University and Hanns Seidel Foundation Korea Office in Seoul, hopefully contributes to the discussion of unification issues and, ultimately, to a peaceful process for overcoming division on the Korean Peninsula. The book has been printed with
 financial support from Hanns Seidel Foundation.
