The United Nations, the United States Occupation and the 1948 Election in Korea
Leon Gordenker examines the Temporary Commission on Korea (UNTCOK), a subsidiary organ of the United Nations General Assembly, that greatly influenced the preparations for and conduct of the 1948 election in Korea. He argues that despite a likely attack from North Korea, UNTCOK, with the support of the United States, allowed Koreans south of the thirty-eight parallel to go to the polls and begin to put together their own government.
