ABSTRACT

This study focuses on the Korean refugee policy that now attracts a public attention due to the case of Yemeni refugees on the Island of Jeju, Korea. In 2018, about 500 Yemeni refugees came to Jeju island with a visa-exempt status, which has generated various issues related to refugees causing great concern and conflict in Korean society. The refugee problem is not confined to Korea but a global problem, and many countries are exploring various ways to resolve the problem. The purpose of this study is to investigate the current situation and limitations of refugee policies in South Korea by examining the case of Yemeni refugees on Jeju and then to suggest alternatives for their resolution.
