Abstract

The thesis investigates the intersections between the migration regime and the care regime in South Korea. The research is designed as an in-depth policy-oriented case study and adopts documentary analysis and expert interviews as research methods. From the mid-1990s Korea’s transition to a migrant destination country within Asia became evident and the migration inflows have been gendered and ethnised as well as classed. In response, Korea has developed a highly instrumental and differential migration regime: circulatory, anti-settlement policies for non-professional labour migrants in general but supportive and integrative for co-ethnic migrants and marriage migrants. Care, on the other hand, has become a major social policy issue since the early 2000s, facing a care crisis represented by population ageing and the low fertility. (The rest omitted)
