Introduction

 In collaboration with the Rural Development Administration and Yonsei University School of Social Welfare, the Korea Labor Institute organized an international seminar on “Development of Industrial Accident Compensation Insurance and a Strengthened Social Safety Net.”
 At this seminar, the experience and development path of Germany and Austria with such long history of industrial accident insurance (student/farmer injury insurance) were shared as Korea seeks ways to maintain the nation’s healthy human capital. Further, policy measures to build a social safety net for farmers and students in Korea were suggested by Korean speakers.
