(p.27) Chapter 2 The Global Proliferation Approach
Global Rogues and Regional Orders

Oxford University Press

This chapter takes a systematic look at the Bush Doctrine in general and its application to the North Korean case in particular. It explores how 9/11 and the specter of nuclear terrorism gave new meaning to the problems of rogue states and nuclear proliferation, altering previous understandings and policy trajectories laid out by the Clinton administration. This chapter argues that the George W. Bush administration, with its almost exclusive focus on the global, nuclear dimension of the North Korean and Iranian challenges, globalized what had traditionally been regional security problems. In East Asia, where North Korea became a matter of domestic political contestation as nations sought greater regional roles and foreign policy autonomy, the U.S. policy shift was seen as problematic and threatening to regional stability. This chapter maps out broad patterns in the global and regional understandings of, and policy behavior toward, the North Korean challenge.

Keywords:   nuclear proliferation, the Bush Doctrine, 9/11, rogue states, North Korea, Iran, East Asia
