  Overcoming Humanitarian Dilemmas in the DPRK (North Korea): Special Reports: Publications: U.S. Institute of Peace
In 1995, multilateral, bilateral, and non-governmental humanitarian agencies responded to the crisis through the provision of large-scale assistance, and they continue seven years later to provide "emergency" or humanitarian assistance, although in 2002 most of the agencies are attempting to incorporate some form of development or rehabilitation into their humanitarian programs.
In practice, the humanitarian dilemma is never fully resolved but instead humanitarian agencies, as they do in all countries in which they operate, make the best of the circumstances in which they work: continuing to deliver much-needed aid and at the same time continuing to negotiate with the government to improve operating conditions.
Humanitarian assistance is also valued—explicitly by some and implicitly by others—because it facilitates an increase in knowledge and in confidence and trust building between the DPRK and the outside world.
