Abstract
Following the adoption in 2006 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, Korea, as a signatory to the pact, has legislated Anti-Discrimination and Remedies for Persons with Disabilities Act in 2007 and more recently, in 2015, made a substantial amendment to its Act on Welfare of Persons with Disabilities. Despite these and other efforts, however, discrimination against disability persists and tales thereof have been a ceaseless staple of media coverage in Korea. Thus, this study intends to look at changes over the past decade in discrimination against disabilities and draw policy implications.
