- This inquiry demonstrates the future tasks and directions of South Korea"s military reform contemplated to meet the challenges and obstacles in international politics. It first identifies strategic and structural changes in the Northeast Asian security context and examines security policy behaviors of regional powers toward the Korean peninsula. In doing so, this paper discusses possible roles for U.S. military forces in Korea and the future directions of both security alliance and economic alignment mechanisms for neighboring countries in Northeast Asia. This paper then explores external sources of threats, and suggests that military reform should be aimed at eliminating uncertainties and long-term regional challenges presented by and after the emergence of a Unified Korea. This study contends that the Unified Korea will require reliable, secure and strong military forces with the integrated C4ISR system (command, control, communication, computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) to effectively meet uncertainties and supra-/super-national threats.
