This book traces the development of the Korean welfare state, arguing that it presents a unique challenge to existing theoretical propositions underlying social policy development. Drawing on both Western and Korean literature, it examines the implementation of social policy programs both before and after 1987, discussing their impact on Korean economic, political and social life and the potential for further development of the Korean welfare state.
