ABSTRACT

Recent years have seen a sudden increase in the number of foreigners staying in Korea, causing the issue of how to assist them in adapting themselves to Korean society to emerge. To deal with this issue, the Korean government has been modifying laws and regulations since 2007. A significant role is played by the Foreigner Policy Committee, which was founded in 2008 to supervise all foreigner related matters. The analysis of the annual enforcement plans of central and local governments, which were established based on the ‘the First Foreigners' Policy Master Plan’ of 2008, reveal budget shortfalls, budgetary overlaps, and the absence of outcome evaluations to be the main drawbacks. This study has a particular focus on budget shortages, and suggests the introduction of related funds to the system as an alternative to the current situation. Funds are similar to special accounts in some ways, but provide a good fit to the requirements of foreigner-related policies - autonomy and the necessity of long-term plans. In terms of financial resources, various ways of fundraising are proposed under the benefit principle.
