Abstract:

To cause intended effectsand avoid unintended effectsin the fiendishly complex regional environment surrounding the Korean peninsula, United States policymakers are required to understand both what motivates key actors and what type of strategic confrontation they face. To these ends, this report applies core insights from the cognition and neuroscience of decision-making, combined with data from historical and contemporary cases of decision-making such as the past 50 years of Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea DPRK military-diplomatic campaigns. Two broad sets of conclusions emerge.
