- This paper analyzes the knowledge partnership (KP) between North Korea and the
international community between 1997~2006. The paper focuses on broadly-defined
economics-related projects, which are expected to help the DPRK start economic
transition and development by providing the country with necessary information and
knowledge. North Korea’s knowledge partnership were very active during 2001~2004
but decreased after their announcement of nuclear weapons in 2005. Despite this, some
countries and organizations have been very successful in continuing their efforts for KP,
including during the post-announcement years of 2005~2006. The paper outlines the
history of these processes, recommends that the international community continue to
approach North Korean with patience, and proposes an international consortium for this
mutually beneficial KP with the DPRK.
