Overview

The Korean peninsula often comes to mind as a global security flash point. The most recent reminders include North Korea's April 2012 failed test of a multistage rocket and the November 2010 North Korean shelling of South Korea's Yeonpyeong Island. Given the seriousness of the ongoing standoff on the Korean peninsula, South Korea's emergence as an active contributor to international security addressing challenges far from the Korean peninsula is a striking new development, marking South Korea's emergence as a producer rather than a consumer of global security resources. This volume outlines South Korea's progress and accomplishments toward enhancing its role and reputation as a contributor to international security.
