reunified korea welfare system; post-unification social security
This research predicts welfare demands of the reunified Korea based on scrutinizing the current welfare condition in North Korea and explores the means through which inter-Korean integration can be fully realized by improving the quality of life of the people of the two Koreas. The results holistically show high levels of demand in all areas of welfare and the reasons might pertain to insufficient social services they were provided with. This result implies a surge of welfare needs from people of the North after unification and is indicative of their high demands of social services.
