The Korean War is the longest standing U.S. conflict. While it no longer consists of active fighting, hostilities between the warring parties have remained high, resulting in the extreme militarization of the Korean Peninsula. Here are five reasons we need a Korea peace agreement:

Ever since, relations between North Korea and the U.S. have been characterized by distrust and fear that fighting could resume at any time.
Feminist peace is a fundamentally different approach to peace and security that defines true human security not by stockpiling weapons or issuing threats, but by dismantling structures of oppression and injustice through negotiation and cooperation.
Since North Korea conducted its first nuclear test in 2006, the UN Security Council has imposed nearly a dozen sanctions against the country, adding to unilateral U.S. sanctions.
