ABSTRACT

A total of 30,805 North Korean defectors have entered South Korea as of June 2017, but they have difficulties in adapting themselves to the South Korean society for various reasons. The purpose of this study was to analyze the levels of expectation and satisfaction in term of quality of life among North Korean defectors, and develop policies to assist their stable settlement and improve their quality of life. A survey was conducted for 400 North Korean defectors aged ≥20 years all over the country with a questionnaire including the items such as expectation and satisfaction as well as perceived quality of life. The survey also asks about the relationship with community residents, security, education, welfare, employment conditions, resident participation activity, and so on. Based on the results, this study suggests some policy implications.
