Abstract

Over the past decade, Korea has witnessed a great deal of changes in our social policies in terms of both quality and quantity. For example, the National Basic Livelihood Security was implemented, and new approaches concerning labor market and family relation were pursued. Also, the level of social expenditure for low-income groups, although still remaining below the level it should reach, has been on a rapid
increase. Along this line, many efforts have been made from the 1997 economic crisis on to analyze such changes. Most of these efforts, however, are concentrated on specific fields, failing to capture the more general changes that took place in the framework of social
policy at large. In this aspect, it may be meaningful to explore the new concept of 'social quality' and look into the possibility of its application to social policy. The concept of 'social quality', which has gained considerable currency in Europe after the term 'social
exclusion', is so little discussed in Korea. We attempt to apply 'social quality' to explaining today's social phenomena that became prominent since 2000, including the increasing number of poverty entrants and the widening rich-and-poor gap, and the emergence of such socially-underprivileged groups as bad credit holders, the working-poor, and immigrant workers. As an attempt to move beyond the boundaries of traditional economic indicators in explaining social phenomena, we explore various social issues in terms of newly
developed a new set of indicators that incorporates the concept of social quality in the framework of social status and policy. We hope that this study will be followed by many more studies and data gatherings which will help round out our views on current social issues and facilitate a furtherance of social policy.
