2013 International Conference
「Harmonizing Social Welfare and Economic Growth」


Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP) is co-organizing the conference “Harmonizing Social Welfare and Economic Growth: European Experiences and Implications for Korea” in September 26~27 2013. South Korea being a relative newcomer in the field of social welfare, Korean academic and policy circles are in search of a unique Korean model of social welfare, which hopefully does not slow down Korea’s economic growth dynamics. In doing so, experiences of selected European countries could provide valuable lessons. The Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP), in cooperation with Korean-German Academy of Economics and Management (Koreanisch-Deutsche Gesellschaft für Wirtschaftswissenschaften, KDGW) and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES), is going to host an international conference under the title “Harmonizing Social Welfare and Economic Growth: European Experiences and Implications for Korea”. Prominent Korean and European scholars and policy-makers are invited to present their thoughts at this international conference.
