Abstract

There was a new demand for alternative policies that would ensure the nation’s continuance as a welfare state. While many theories were presented and debated, the states’ focus remained on maintaining successful linkage between the economic growth and expansion (or its attainment) of welfare state. This shift marked a major turning point for the welfare states’ policies. From this discussion, this study seeks to examine the validity of Social Policy Vision 2030—collective social policies for Korean social investment strategy, women and family policies. In Korea, until and even after the economic crisis in 1997, the main purpose of welfare expansion was mainly to promote economic growth. Indeed, the recent expansion of women and family policies is due to worry about declining economic potential. (The rest omitted)
