ABSTRACT

This paper aims to evaluate the characteristics of the Moon Jae-in government's labor reform policies within the framework of a comparable analysis. The Moon Jae-in government's labor-related manifesto was an encompassing security strategy that guarantees the employment and welfare of outsiders as well as insiders of labor market. However, the actually implemented labor policies were a smoothed dualization strategy, in which outsiders’ social protection was limited. The gap between the ideals and realities of labor policy is due not only to the absence of a detailed roadmap for worsening economic conditions and weak political power, but also to structural constraints such as the conservative welfare regime, consolidated dual labor market and weak left-wing parties.
