Project Description: For nearly thirteen hundred years, the Korean peninsula was a unified kingdom. Affected largely by different countries’ desire to rule the Korea peninsula, the region saw various clashes and wars between different parties. Eventually, after the World War II came to an end, the Soviet troops took over the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK or North Korea) while the Unites States’ troops took over the Republic of Korea(ROK or South Korea) in the wake of Japanese surrender. The days which followed saw a physical division of the Korean peninsula along the 38th parallel.
The constant failure in reunification talks and of forums like the Six-Party Talks, coupled with Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s(DPRK or North Korea) aggressive approach, the breakdown of the Agreed Framework, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK or North Korea) closed approach towards organizations like the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) along with many other factors have largely contributed towards the political and social instability that still exists in the Korean peninsula. The region experiences large scale human rights violation and constant border clashes making this a volatile area and risking the stability in the entire Asian region.
