Chapter Summary

This chapter of the book presents a map of the Korean Peninsula. In 2012, relations between the Republic of Korea (ROK-South Korea) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK-North Korea) were marked by continuous flexing of rhetorical muscles and military provocations, but no deadly military clashes were reported. Both countries underwent leadership transitions, but if optimists had hoped for a turning point in inter-Korean relations such hopes quickly faded away. The DPRK was focused on a smooth dynastic transition, and the transaction costs of a shift in policy were apparently perceived as too high.

Keywords: Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK); Republic of Korea (ROK)
