Abstract : One of the few remaining locations of confrontation left in the world is the Korean Peninsula. As Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union have dissolved the number of true Marxist/Communist nation states is severely reduced. The history of the peninsula specifically with the United States and North Korea has been stormy since the Armistice of 1953. The volatility of the peninsula suggests that renewed hostilities remain possible. With serious consequences for the entire Northeast Asia region. A methodology that offers some promise for all parties involved is the arms control process. This strategic research project will analyze the arms control methodology and its potential for stabilizing the Korean peninsula and therefore lessening the potential for war.
