Introduction
Cho and McLean (2002) published one of the first English-language articles on NHRD in the Republic of Korea (South Korea, hereafter, Korea). This early paper covered only the basic elements of NHRD, including definitions, visions, and goals, and policy areas and issues. These same authors subsequently extended their work in a paper that summarized 13 country cases and presented the resultant emerging models, attributes, barriers, outcomes, implications, and future directions of NHRD (Cho & McLean, 2004). Since then, the concept of NHRD has evolved due to policy changes caused by global and domestic political changes over the years.

Abstract

Since 2001, the concept, scope, and policies of National Human Resource Development (NHRD) in the Republic of Korea (South Korea, hereafter, Korea) have been under academic debate and policy experimentation. This article presents an in-depth case study of the evolution of NHRD models, policies, and outcomes in Korea, especially since 1998. Budget, support organizations, outcomes, barriers, and limitations of Korean NHRD were identified and analyzed. Implications provide insights not only for countries that already have NHRD policies, including Korea, but also for countries that may wish to have an NHRD vision and strategies for their national economic and social development.
