International Science and Technology Cooperation: Issues and Strategies for U.S. Policy.
Abstract: As the new Administration attempts to reinvigorate U.S. science and to address critical problems in a wide variety of applied fields, global concerns re-emerge to present both policy opportunities and challenges.  Scientific and technological resources can be leveraged effectively by collaborative research and innovation through partnerships among governments, NGOs, academic institutions and enterprises.  International science engagement can also produce many collateral benefits in preventing WMD proliferation, building S&T sector capacity, and supporting nations to transform into knowledge-based economies.    These functional benefits can be implemented with a specific set of proven methods: including cooperative grant making, institution-building, and joint issue-oriented centers of S&T excellence.  Science policies that recognize these advantages can realize tangible advantages through co-funding arrangements with host countries and in mobilizing a larger pool of scientific assets.

Effective Denuclearization Policy in U.S. Military Strategy: The Case of North Korea.
Abstract: Since North Korea possessed nuclear weapons, the Obama administration has pursued more drastic policy to defeat North Korea's nuclear strategy but its process is not fulfilling without producing significant outcomes. If North Korea becomes a formal nuclear country with advanced military techniques which continually supports other potential nuclear countries, the U.S. will lose strategic balance of denuclearization policy in Northeast Asia and it will propel overall shrinkage of the U.S. power.
In this paper, North Korea’s overall military techniques with nuclear weapons will be precisely reviewed to establish effective denuclearization policy in U.S. military strategy. North Korea’s military techniques can be analyzed and evaluated in a few ways: 1) Overall military capacity 2) Nuclear techniques 3) WMD 4) Satellites.
North Korea already supported Iran’s first satellite launch with advanced military techniques and Syria and Miyanma’s nuclear development as well. It has also exchanged missile techniques with nuclear techniques of Pakistan. Not only nuclear techniques but also massive destruction missiles and weapons more seriously impact on international security whom North Korea has been exporting or delivering to terror countries and groups. In advance, North Korea would initiate nuclear symptoms in the international society while stimulating nuclear countries to reinforce nuclear weapons.Therefore, I will focus on U.S. strategy to deal with North Korea’s military techniques to find out its strategic tool and apply its methodology on policy making process. If the U.S. succeeds in denuclearizing North Korea, it will result in controlling China and Japan’s military expansion as well as reduction policy of nuclear weapons with Russia on the top position for balance of power in Northeast Asia as the strongest military country.
