ABSTRACT

As migration caused by various issues is on the rise, migrants of diverse ethnic backgrounds are also entering South Korea consistently as migrant workers, foreign students, expatriates, and refugees. In particular, Muslim refugees are characterized solely by their religion and have become targets of discrimination. European countries such as the United Kingdom, which have experienced these trends generations before South Korea has, always appear as exemplary case studies during discussions of such issues. In this article, the authors compare the characteristics of the introduction and settlement processes of Muslim communities into the UK and South Korea in an effort to identify aspects from our past to avoid repeating. By doing so, the authors propose that cooperative efforts between Koreans and migrants, and identifying the missional implications in them, are necessary for migrant Muslims to become a member of Korean society.
