In conclusion, this chapter attempts to provide a concise comparative analysis of the case studies discussed, in order to delineate a compact, tangible understanding of how risks have been recalibrated during the post-Cold War period, as covered in the preceding chapters. In addition, the primacy and relative influence of the key actors involved is highlighted. This is achieved, firstly, by a re-examination of the theoretical framework and its significance to the empirical findings exposed. As yet uncovered comparisons of the qualitative data accessed above are then conducted, and are supplemented with a correlating exposition of the quantitative data. This is expressed in the form of composite figures constructed from the data sources assimilated in relation to each of the case studies examined in the book. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the possibilities for greater employment of approaches based upon risk across relevant scientific disciplines—and addresses the specific prospects for North Korea’s continued framing in Japan. This includes proposals for further related research.
