Migration and Integration

The international migration and integration project focuses on the numerous challenges within Korean society related to migration, as well as the issue of integration of migrants, including refugees.
Migration can be source of great benefits for the recipient country, but it is also associated with a diverse array of social issues, among which are the challenges of migrant integration. This research program incorporates field-based research on the current conditions of migrants in South Korea. We focus our research and efforts on finding better policy alternatives to address the current the status of refugees and migrants in connection with intersectoral topics such as labor, care and family.

Gender Equality

Taking into account Korea's history and social context, we seek change by identifying and analyzing the current status of gender inequality, focusing in the areas of family and labor.
Considering the structural context in which gender discrimination occurs -including Korea's- we provide measures and suggestions to achieve a more gender equal and fair society.
