Features of a Peace Dividend for the Two Koreas
Can you imagine peace on the Korean Peninsula? As difficult as it may be, this goal to end hostilities between the southern Republic of Korea (ROK) and the northern Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has been a stated goal of the “Six Parties” – China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Russia, and the United States – since September 2005.1 The potential for peace on the Korean Peninsula implies the subsequent emergence of a “peace dividend” for the two Koreas, which is the subject of this chapter.
