Northeast Asia remains fraught with numerous security challenges. Not only is it where two of the world's Nuclear Weapons States (Russia and China) are found, territorial and maritime disputes between Northeast Asian states also abound. However, it is the division of the Korean peninsula into two states (the North and the South) along with the denuclearization of the peninsula that are most cumbersome. This essay examines the challenges and prospects of creating a security community in Northeast Asia in the context of the current security challenges. The Deutschian concept of security community is used in this essay to provide a starting point to develop a security community in the region. The essay argues that the presence or availability of a multilateral security dialogue mechanism is the key step in facilitating the creation of a security community in Northeast Asia. This security community is attained when the Northeast Asian states would no longer be expecting or preparing to use military force in dealing with each other or when there is real assurance that they would rather settle their disputes in another way rather than fighting.
