ABSTRACT

Strengthening the publicness of social services is considered as a way of correcting drawbacks of marketized social services. To this end, Moon Jae-in administration introduced the Public Agency for Social Service(PASS). This study examines whether the PASS contributes to enhancing the publicness of social services. Relying on the concept of integrative publicness, this study classify dimesions of the publicness of social services into core publicness, dimensional publicness and normative publicness. It uses reports from the demonstration projects of PASS to access how the PASS implemented those tasks. Although it is in early stage, PASS shows a potential as a policy tool of expanding public infrastructure of social services, changing commercialized culture and practices among social service providers and improving quality of employment for social care services. This study suggests that PASS can contribute to improving the standard of social care services and achieving gender equality as an public agency for community care services.
