Preface
The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique window of opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development. Within one generation, Korea had transformed itself from a poor agrarian society to a modern industrial nation, a feat never seen before.

Abstract

This study was conducted in order to create basic information for the modularization of support policies for single-parent families, which is part of ‘Korea’s Knowledge Sharing Program’ directed by the Ministry of Strategy and Finance. Chosen as one of the ‘100 Goals’, Korea’s support for single-parent families is a policy that is closely aligned with the objectives of the UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This policy has the potential to be an important case study for developing countries as it is a Korean ODA model that has strengths in the breadth it covers and the flexibility it has in responding to social changes.
1. Objectives and Achievements of Korea’s Support Policies for Single-parent Families
Korea’s support policies for single-parent families are considered to have started in 1989 with the legislation of the Single-mother and Child Welfare Act. (The rest omitted)
