South Korea's policy on multicultural families has achieved remarkable progress since the mid-2000s when the country legislated the Multicultural Family Support Act; formed departments dedicated to multicultural family policy at the central government level; and prepared inter-departmental coordinating systems. However, the policy is likely to leave out some groups if it fails to embrace all the groups prescribed by the law and the system. Focusing on female Korean-ethnic Chinese marriage immigrants, male marriage immigrants and their families who are excluded from the policy, this study aims to examine the policy demands of these groups, their experiences with receiving policy benefits, and the limitations of policy approaches for them.
This study analyzed the original data of the 2009 national survey about the actual conditions of multicultural families and the use of multicultural family support centers by sub-groups of marriage immigrants. The analysis showed that compared to other ethnic Koreans, female Korean-Chinese marriage immigrants were often excluded from multicultural family policy. (The rest is omitted)
