Sanctions have played a vital role in the creation of American and international policy toward North Korea. However, lax enforcement and the nature of North Korea as a hard target have minimised sanctions success. Therefore, it is time for the international community to think of implementing a new strategy. This paper will argue the need for a positive sanctions regime, leveraging the interests of China, South Korea, and the United States, which rewards Pyongyang for taking substantial steps toward denuclearisation and will show how such a regime can be implemented into our current policy on North Korean denuclearisation.
