      • October 2006 – Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea tests nuclear weapon
      • 2009 – another test (no intention to end program)
      • Anno 2012: North Korea in a period of transition
        • Kim Il Jong’s death
        • Renewed focus on economic development
    • North Korea and Weapons of Mass-Destruction
      • Insecurities after Korean War led DPRK to develop nuclear weapons
        • Technology for carriers developed with (reluctant) help of China and USSR, weapons with Pakistani expert A.Q. Khan’s help
        • North Korea ratified the NPT on December 12, 1985

        • North Korea tests a nuclear weapon amidst international controversy on 09/10/2006
        • 2009: second test
    • International Community involvement
        • Most UN efforts have gone unheeded due to lack of consensus
        • North-Korean withdrawal from NPT makes sanctions/controls through IAEA impossible
        • Six-party talks (featuring the PRC, Russia, Japan, South Korea and the US) have been most fruitful, but have also failed in 2006
    • Current situation
        • Still existing regional threat of North-Korea’s nuclear stockpile
        • North-Korea’s unusual interests have made it respond poorly to traditional enforcement mechanisms
        • Traditional UN Policy has failed
        • Current situation is complicated by Chinese (be it at times reluctant) allegiance to protecting its Communist neighbour
