The United States has multiple tools at its disposal that it can use to achieve its North Korea policy goals, including diplomatic, economic, and military tools, among others. This article will focus on two specific tools: the U.S.-Republic of Korea (ROK) alliance and the promotion of human rights in North Korea. While seemingly separate, they share the characteristic of representing a U.S. commitment to Korea. Taking these two factors into consideration highlights the importance of the U.S. commitment to Korea in achieving its national and international security goals.
HRNK staff members and interns wish to dedicate this program to our colleagues Katty Chi and Miran Song.
