Abstract

Over the past 20 years, the immigration into the Republic of Korea has increased at a rapid pace, while emigration of Korean nationals has declined substantially. Previously a country of emigration, Korea has now become a net migrant receiving country. Responding to this rapid change, the government of Korea in recent years has amended and adopted laws and regulations related to immigration, and has introduced new policies to facilitate the integration of migrants into Korean society. The evolving migration landscape in Korea and the development of new immigration policies have had a significant impact on Korean society.
