Transcript: Sadly, not much movement occurs in North Korea. If the people even try to leave, the government provides consequences. The government has total control and they decide where people are, and how everything works and flows. South declares independence, sparking North Korean invasion.

Change of Territories in Korean Peninsula Head of government The economy is centrally planned system Role of market allocation is limited Limited attempts at decentralization since mid 1993 Reports of economic liberalization after Kim Jong-un assumed the leadership in 2012 is conflicting Legislative North Korea has a centralized government under the rigid control of the communist Korean workers party KWP. All government officials belong to this party. A few minor political parties are allowed to exist in name only. Little is known of actual line of power and authority in the North Korean government despite the formal structure set in the constitution. Kim Jong-Il was named general secretary of the KWP in October 1997. The president of presidium of the Supreme people assembly (SPA). Kim Young-nam serve as the nominal head of state. North Korean 1972 constitution was amended in late 1992, September 1998 and April 2009. Following the death of Kim Jong-Il in December 2011, his son Kim Jong-un became the Supreme commander of a Korean people’s army. North Korea withdraws from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), a key international agreement aimed at preventing the spread of atomic weapons. North Korea Physical Features/map 1400~1950 North Korea population is approximately 24 million 90% are Koreans and 10% are Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese and European Since 1950, the female population is higher than the male The ratio is 100% vs 97.1% One of the reasons is because the males have been busy in war fronts since 1950s Region 1. Geographical Information 2. Historical Background 3. Economical Information 4. Government Information 1948 After the death of Kim Jong Il in December 2011, North Korea was called on to orchestrate only the second leadership transition in its sixty-five year history. The previous time, in 1994, the situation had been bleak. The ‘Arduous March’ period was well under way: tens of thousands of people were dying every month from the effects of malnutrition, and the economy was in meltdown, as factories, farms and workshops closed due to the scarcity of a wide range of inputs, including electricity. The government went into limbo as Kim Jong Il spent three years mourning his father - he did not officially take over the reins of power until autumn 1997. This time, with barely a 100-day pause for mourning, Kim Jong Un has become the head of a new collective leadership that appears firmly in control; and this time it’s a leadership that talks. In fifteen years as leader Kim Jong Il uttered only a single sentence in public, while on 15 April 2012 Kim Jong Un gave a carefully crafted twenty minute speech that was effectively Pyongyang’s ‘State of the Union’ address.

Kim Jong Il spent much of the countries money on the army. Millions of North Koreans have starved to death since the mid-1990s because of food shortages. The country's poverty was never mentioned to the people of North Korea. North Koreans do not know what is happening in the world. The government controls the music people listen to, the TV shows they watch, and the newspapers they read. Very few North Koreans are even allowed to use the Internet. Many people who speak out against the government are held in concentration camps and can face torture until they agree with the Workers Party beliefs *People cannot tell how they really feel *Christians are punished because of their beliefs *North Korean citizens usually cannot freely travel around the country. *Leaving the country is forbidden. 100 BC-1600 The History of North Korea Lack of Freedom The Korean War began when Kim II Sung sent his army into South Korea.

Transcript: “Since 1990 the number of North Koreans fleeing the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea (DPRK or North Korea) has escalated. Approximately thirty thousand to fifty thousand North Koreans are estimated to have migrated to China. At the end of May 2010 the number of North Koreans currently residing in South Korea had risen to nineteen thousand” (Lee & Kim 2011, p. 59) Perspectives on migration North Korea China South Korea Future problems of migration Security issue for both North Korea and the International Community.

Food Crisis The most pressing human security area in North Korea? Economic Crisis “The North Korean economy is one of the world’s most isolated and bleak. It was completely bypassed by the “economic miracles” of the past quarter century that brought modern economic growth and industrialization to South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong-Kong” (Kihl & Kim, 2006, p.119) North Korea : Focus is on settlement of the past in the form of reparation. It views the hostage situation as resolved. BBC World Service Poll (2013 :35): 92% of Japanese hold a negative view of the DPRK, and no respondents expressed a positive view. This is the most negative outlook in the survey, with the global average at 54% negative, 18% positive, and 28% neutral Do you agree that the major security problems in North Korea can be examined by focusing on issues of identity? “The Japanese side regards, in a spirit of humility, the facts of history that Japan caused tremendous damage and suffering to the people of Korea through its colonial rule in the past, and expressed deep remorse and heartfelt apology” South Korea Migration China “Security and insecurity are no longer considered as conditioned only upon geopolitics and military strength, but also on social, economic, environmental and cultural issues” (Burgess, 2008, p.61) Causes of the rise in importance? UN Human Development Report (1994) Constructivism and human security 1910-1945 Lee (2013, p.59) highlights that 50% of Chinese scholars believe a unified Korea will pose a threat to China with reunification, would become nationalistic could ignite territorial claims over "Gan-do", today's Manchuria - as many Koreans see this as their lost territory undermines Chinese nationalism + identity Importance of Japan North Korea Major US ally in the region (Auslin 2011:196) Third largest economy in the world (IMF, 2013) Key player in terms of regional stability Major role in Six Party Talks Stridently anti-proliferation Japanese Hostage Situation Creates the necessary room for the identities and interests of international actors to take a central place in theorizing international relations. North Korea North Korean Nuclear Programme - source of insecurity Reinforced by identity Without WMD "Rogue State" - illegitimate (Becker, 2005,pix) Accumulation of WMD affirms "Roguish identity" - no legitimacy Cyclical relationship (Shearman, 2013, p148) Undermines power of International Community Human Security Issues Japanese Colonial Era Opposition to Japanese rule as a significant source of Korean identity. Personality Cult of Kim Il Sung, Identity - cause of Nuclear Proliferation Juche, self-reliance: central focus of authority on the state (BBC, 2013/Cumings, 2012, p217) Power and Sovereignty key for state legitimacy (Bluth in Shearman, 2013, p147) Withheld by the International Community Aim of Kim regime - gain legitimacy Engage International community through Nuclear Weapons - only source of leverage (Bluth in Shearman, 2013, p146) Environmental Crisis Deforestation Natural Disasters Pollution Personal & Political Security Freedom House Survey North Korea & Japan Why is human security important? Is the claim that significant elements of international relations are historically and socially constructed, rather than consequences of human nature.
