Abstract

Saemaul Undong is a social movement that started the process of rural modernization in the 1970s. It was aimed at increasing the income of agricultural households and improving living conditions and production infrastructure based on promoting diligence, self-help and cooperation. The movement represents the most successful model adopted by the state for the development of local communities. In the 2000s, Saemaul Undong had become internationalized to the extent that developing countries have adopted it as a national development model. Localized Saemaul Undong projects are being steadily staged in such countries. They are often led by people who have received relevant training on Saemaul Undong in Korea. This study reviews the evolution of Saemaul Undong as well as its achievements. (rest omitted)
