A primary objective of this volume is to introduce papers and reports describing policies and approaches in selected areas of Korean social welfare. With a relatively small number of writings, we attempt to capture the increasingly diverse and dramatically evolving landscape of social welfare in South Korea, a new member nation of OECD.

Twenty-six researchers, educators and practitioners contributed their valuable works. The volume is organized into six parts. "Culture and Social Welfare," "Policies," "Aging," "Issues and Ways," "Cross-Cultural Perspectives," and "NGOs in Action." As contributors make clear, the study of Korean social welfare is maturing. They document this development in a multidisciplinary application of new knowledge and skills to policymaking and intervention.

Readers will find this volume useful in understanding how certain social welfare issues are addressed and ways in which actions are being taken to resolve the issues in the Korean cultural context in East Asia.
