Thesis (M.P.P.)--Georgetown University, 2010.; Includes bibliographical references.; Text (Electronic thesis) in PDF format. This paper investigates the trajectory of civil society in post-communist East European countries to draw lessons for civil society formation in North Korea after unification. It analyzes how the level of civil society in post-communist context is influenced by socio-economic factors such as economic resources, culture and history, and democratic institutions. Also, the effectiveness of policies that specifically support NGOs will be studied. According to the lessons drawn from the analysis, this paper suggests principles on which future policies for human empowerment in North Korea can be made.
