1. Chlumecky, Nicholas. North Korea, representation and armament: an investigation into the politics of missile defense.

Degree: Department of Pacific and Asian Studies, 2018, University of Victoria

This thesis examines how corporations use North Korea’s media portrayal to profit. By gaining government contracts to develop weapons and missile defense systems, companies such as Lockheed Martin make billions of dollars. The thesis will examine how this is accomplished in three stages: first, by examining how soft power is generated and used to build a consensus. Then, government usage of soft power to rationalize North Korea as a threat is discussed. Finally, how corporations profit from government-authorized weapons programs will be detailed. The thesis will incorporate theory based off of the ideas of Joseph Nye, as well as geopolitical concepts promulgated by Michael Hardt. Advisors/Committee Members: Endo, Katsuhiko (supervisor).

Subjects/Keywords: missile defense; THAAD; North Korea; GMD; Aegis; Aegis BMD; Joseph Nye; Michael Hardt; Antonio Negri; Boeing; Lockheed Martin; Raytheon; Empire; human rights; United Nations; UN
