The Politics of the Welfare State in South Korea

"South Korea was one of the poorest countries in the world in the 1950s, but it became an economic giant within a few decades and joined the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development in 1996. The `developmental state' is played an important role in the economic transformation of the country. However, the `growth first-distribution later' strategy of the state gave low priority to the welfare measures as the focus of the state was on the economic growth. But after the 1997 Asian financial crisis and with the rising socio-economic problems the state in South Korea has started expanding welfare measures. This book examimes the politics of the welfare state in South Korea."
