Abstract

Combining economic development and poverty reduction is a challenge for developing countries. To find mechanisms for integrating both goals, the authors examine the Republic of Korea’s development strategy that transformed one of Asia’s poorest nations into an industrialized one, with low levels of poverty. The paper investigates the state-society nexus in which Korea’s developmental state has operated and looks at governance for economic development, focusing especially on multifunctioning institutions performing for economic growth and poverty reduction. It also provides strategic suggestions for developing countries on managing effectively within institutional constraints and moving beyond a simple emphasis on good governance.
