It is intended to form a nationwide sympathy on the vision and values of unification, and a base form of international cooperation as well.

「Unification and North Korea Materials」 is composed of the four categories of 「Inter-Korean Relations and Unification」, 「A Detail View of North Korea」, 「Unification on the Korean Peninsula and International Relations」, and 「Human Rights in North Korea and International Cooperation」.
