주최 | 서울대 국제이주와 포용사회센터, 한국인구학회, 미 아메리칸대 CWE-GAM 프로젝트 일시 | 2021년 6월 2~4일장소 | 서울대 국제대학원 국제회의실 (※ 온라인 화상회의 동시 진행)본 센터는 2021년 6월, 국제 컨퍼런스 <코로나19와 돌봄경제 : 지속가능한 돌봄사회로의 전환>을 주최했습니다. 6월 2일부터 4일까지 사흘간 세계 각국의 전문가들을 온라인으로 연결해 코로나19 사태로 인한 돌봄 위기 실태를 고찰하며 돌봄경제 육성 및 돌봄사회로의 전환에 관한 토론을 벌였습니다.컨퍼런스 참가자들은 코로나19 팬데믹 상황에서 부각된 돌봄위기의 실태를 조명하고, 돌봄경제 관련 최신 연구 결과를 공유했습니다. 이를 통해 돌봄경제에 대한 재인식을 촉구하며, 돌봄 투자를 통한 지속가능한 돌봄사회로의 전환 전략을 논의했습니다. 돌봄 문제를 방치할 경우 각 국가의 젠더 불평등과 경제 발전이 향후 얼마나 악화되는지, 돌봄 시스템을 구축하고 투자할 경우 국가 경제가 얼마나 성장할 수 있는지에 대한 시뮬레이션 결과도 소개됐습니다.이번 컨퍼런스에는 전 세계 600여 명이 참여했습니다. 학계 뿐만 아니라 정부, 기업, 시민사회 등 다양한 섹터를 대표하는 분들이 참석해 더욱 의미가 깊었습니다. 노벨경제학상 수상자 조지프 스티글리츠 미 컬럼비아대 석좌교수, 돌봄경제 주창자인 낸시 폴브레 미 메사추세츠대 명예교수, 정영애 여성가족부 장관, 최정우 포스코의 회장 등이 연사로 나섰으며, 본 센터장인 은기수 서울대 국제대학원 교수와 아니아 바티아 UN 여성 부총재, 캐런 그라운 세계은행 글로벌 젠더 디렉터 등도 발표 및 토론에 참여했습니다. 또한 행사 마지막 날인 6월 4일에는 돌봄 분야 신진 연구자를 위한 워크샵이 열려, 석박사 과정 학생들의 연구 발표를 국내외 학자들이 경청하고 조언하는 학술 교류의 시간을 가졌습니다.

On October 29, 2019, the Center for Transnational Migration and Social Inclusion, which was officially launched in August of this year under the Institute of International Affairs at SNU GSIS, hosted an international conference on “Values of Care Work and Social Inclusion.” Five other institutions joined efforts to lend generous support for this event, including Open Society Foundations, the largest private human rights funder in the world committed to building vibrant and inclusive societies. The conference brought together researchers and representatives from civil society organizations to share knowledge on the present state of care provisioning in South Korea, learn about the respective challenges for paid and unpaid caregivers, and discuss necessary policy changes that are grounded in recognition of the value of care work. Stories from Thailand, Malaysia, and Colombia enriched the discussion and provided better perspectives to reflect on the case of South Korea. The participants affirmed the need for enhanced cooperation between the research community and civil society so that the actual voices of care workers can be better heard in the process of policy-making. The October 29th conference was held as part of a four-day program comprising of two expert workshops and two conferences, which aimed to examine the subject of care in the context of solidarity and social inclusion. The Center, under the directorship of Professor Ki-Soo Eun of SNU GSIS, has been conducting research with a broad network of scholars for the Care Work and the Economy Project (American University) to achieve a deeper understanding of the nature of care work through the use of innovative measures and methods, and to contribute to the development of tools for shaping relevant macroeconomic and social policies.

On February 25, 2019, a new project gathering organizations supporting care workers in South Korea was launched, led by Care Work and the Economy (CWE-GAM) and its partner Seoul National University (SNU). Researchers from academia and government agencies discussed issues and challenges in getting care on the policy agenda, aiming to promote informed policies that enhance the quality of life of both those providing and receiving care. Care for children, the elderly, and other dependents is vital as it sustains human existence, enhances individual and broader societal well-being, and promotes sustainable development. Despite continuous efforts in providing benefits for individuals, families, and communities, care work is enormously undervalued. To support such agenda the CWE-GAM, a network of over 35 researchers, is producing new data and empirical evidence to advance knowledge on care work, care arrangements, and policy impacts on growth, distribution, and gender equality in South Korea. The project conducted a nationwide survey on a representative sample of paid care workers (600 respondents) and a household survey of families responsible for caring for children and/or elderly (1,000 respondents), including a 24-hour time use diary and in-depth interviews with caregivers and care recipients (90 respondents). The meeting commenced a long-term commitment to bring together researchers, the civil society, and policy communities to advance the policy discussion on care in South Korea. Over the next year, the CWE-GAM team led by SNU, will convene several small group workshops around the country and will host two more interactive conferences as well as a high-profile policy dialogue in Seoul in the Spring of 2020. The aim of the engagement is to: Support the strategic use of our research and build the capacity of groups to use research more effectively; Provide insights into the production of our research outputs and research-based materials; and Share research findings, policy recommendations, and strengthen relationships among groups and between the civil society, research, and policy communities; The project aims to build connections among and between communities and build up data and research needed by those on the frontlines working to change policy and practice. We hope such actions will lead to more informed policies that better address the needs to those providing and receiving care.
