How can the United States and South Korea best cooperate to address new security challenges? Can the U.S.-ROK alliance serve to advance South Korea's interests and at the same time help the United States to more effectively pursue its own global and regional security objectives? In the context of these questions, the authors explore the possibilities for enhanced cooperation in both traditional and nontraditional spheres.
The chapters, all organized around a common set of questions, address issues ranging from counterterrorism, military affairs, and nuclear nonproliferation, to the environment, pandemics, and biological threats, to peacebuilding, development assistance, and humanitarian aid. In each chapter, the authors consider the capacities and potential for cooperation on both sides, assess the corresponding challenges, and propose new forms of collaboration.
