Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the transformation of the Korean employment system since 1980. The common themes in the study of the comparative political economy of capitalist states deal with the restructuring of the democratic nation-state, the liberalisation of national economies, and the concurrent globalisation of markets and of the political institutions that regulate them. To address these issues, this study explores, on the one hand, the overhauling of Korea’s labour laws in the direction of greater labour flexibility, the changes in collective labour relations, and the policy innovations on labour protection, and on the other, the transformation in Korea’s traditional rule-making process to include both the government and social groups, the restructuring of industrial relations (particularly as regards changes to the supply chain structure), and the embedded role of the state and labour practices in workplaces.
