Dear All, I apologize for the mass E-mail, but I thought this may be the best way to reach out to the vast amount of knowledge you have. I am in the Conflict Resolution (CR) field and am writing a paper on North Korea that deals with the people and how to help solve this protracted conflict. In it, I talk about the levels of absolute deprivation and relative deprivation (AD/RD) and how I believe it affects the rational choice and basic human needs of North Korean to include the ability to make regime change. I also mention how food aid can be a way to help raise the average North Korean's sense of life/faculty (RD), which may help bring about eventual changes in the North Korean Government by the people.
However, I have been criticized for not including more "North Korean Scholarship on this important subject."
Although I am very familiar with North and South Korea, I know of no North Korean Scholarship currently written in the Conflict Resolution Field on Korea.
I assume the that I will have to look outside of the CR field possibly in South Korea, but what this good scholarship may be or who, I really do not know.
By chance, does anyone know of scholarly, well accepted North Korean scholarship or well known authors who write on the above issues in North Korea?
If you could provide a few of the names to me or key article names, I can research the articles/books on those to see what ones may be appropriate for my article.
Thank you for the assistance!
