Abstract

The paper explores South Korea’s South-South Cooperation (SSC) during the Cold War as the roots of its current Official Development Assistance (ODA). Unlike its ODA equivalent of activities, Seoul’s SSC has been relatively neglected in academic literature. By applying Sato (2013)’s conceptualisation of overseas ‘aid’ as a policy and practice of a 'semi-developed' middle-income country, the paper examines how and what domestic conditions allow non-traditional development partners (NTDPs) to choose SSC as an instrument for its own development. In doing so, Sato’s framing opens an interesting analytical possibility to revisit Korea as a South-South Cooperation partner in its pre-ODA period. A more systematic in-depth study on hows and whys of Korea’s initial aid provision (but still as a recipient) deserves better academic attention. Therefore, this paper addresses this scholarly lacuna through the case of Korea during Park Chung Hee and Chun Doo Hwan administrations - while aiming to draw some generalisable traits in an effort to trace the origin and domestic sources of Korea’s initial aid provision.
