Marriage Migrants and Multicultural Families in South Korea
For many years, South Korea has been a homogeneous country. But with more foreigners coming to live in Korea, that is starting to change. In fact, the Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs estimates that the number of multicultural families in Korea could reach nearly 750,000 by 2020.
This week's guest is Dr. Daisy Kim, who studies these multicultural families, with a particular focus on marriage migrants – women who move to Korea to marry a Korean man. We discuss some of the particular issues these women and their families face, what the Korean government has done to support them, and much more.
