Korea's Migrants: From Homogeneity to Diversity

The 9th Annual Koret Workshop

South Korea has long promoted a sense of ethnic unity but in recent years has seen an influx of ethnic and non-ethnic Koreans, making the country more diverse. The government has promoted multiculturalism to deal with such diversity; however, migrants, either permanent or temporary, continue to face discrimination. New approaches are needed to create better social cohesion. This ninth annual conference seeks to examine major issues related to recent migrants in Korea.

NOTE: During the workshop, a keynote address is open to the public. Please click here to register for the lunch time public event on April 21.

The Koret Workshop is made possible through the generous support of the Koret Foundation.
