Webster Thailand’s Rachael M. Rudolph Featured in International Public Policy Review

North Korea (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) remains one of the world’s most secretive nations. Suffering from decades of international sanctions and isolation, very few people are able to visit the country each year. This combined with the often bellicose attitude of the communist regime, means that the country is a fascinating study for researchers and academics alike. 

In an effort to analyze a number of the strategies by which to contain the DPRK’s on-going provocations, Webster University Thailand’s Rachael M. Rudolph recently co-authored an article in the International Public Policy Review (IPPR). In partnership with Nhan (“Nathan”) Tran, a researcher in Vietnam, the article is titled ‘An Electronic and Cyber Warfare Doctrine to Contain North Korea’s Provocations’

Divided in to three distinct components, the article delves into the longstanding issue of peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula. In particular, the article focuses on electronic and cyber warfare methods as possible mechanisms that may be able to open up further space for new multilateral and multi-pronged engagement with the country.

Given the complexities of North Korea’s history, leadership, cult of ideology, and political regime, the article concludes by noting that electronic warfare and cyber warfare can only be considered one pillar of a holistic approach towards dealing with North Korea as a security threat. In fact, it will only be “a concerted, multipronged, and strategic approach” that can “diffuse tensions but also bring about lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula.”
