Abstract

North Korea provides a case study of the inherent tensions between the executive and legislative branches in the determination of U.S. foreign policy. Congress put various obstacles in the path of the Clinton administration's engagement strategy toward North Korea, anticipating some of the policy changes undertaken by the George W. Bush administration in its first term. Recent congressional efforts to inject the issue of human rights into the debate on U.S.-North Korean relations have the potential to backfire unless carefully implemented. Meanwhile, Congress has missed several opportunities to make a positive contribution to the ongoing nuclear crisis. This article will also look at the interest groups that have shaped congressional forays on North Korea and touch briefly on South Korean attempts to influence U.S. legislation on North Korea. Finally, it will discuss possible future struggles between the administration and Congress over North Korea and make recommendations for future policy initiatives.
