Abstract

South Korea’s official development assistance (ODA) has been increasing rapidly and will continue to do so (KOICA, 2006; Lumsdain and Schopf, 2007). Korea is one of the few countries which have successfully transitioned from a recipient to a donor in the last two decades. It is expected that Korea will become a member of DAC (development assistance committee), OECD. Korea’s ODA policy, along with its growth in quantity, is at a crossroad for the enhancement of its quality. Discussions and debates are on-going regarding the reforms in Korea’s ODA activities. This paper examines some issues which must be discussed prior to ODA reforms in Korea. It first reviews the present and past of Korea’s ODA. In doing so, we identify problems and issues of Korea’s ODA. (The rest omitted)
