    Melting the Iceberg analyses the oppurtunities and obstacles in the Korean Reconciliation and Reunification process while exloring effective ways of mobilising international support. The biggest challenge is to achieve the substantive democratisation of the peace process and consolidate new alternative aproaches to peace and security, breaking with the Cold War mould of "security deopendency" and embracing a future based o­n the "globalisation of solidarity".
