Improving North Korean Defector Integration in South Korea: Survey Findings and Recommendations


Dr. Steven Denney co-authored a recent commentary on defector integration in South Korea, published by the news outlet specialized in North Korean events, 38th North.

The article seeks to identify the determinants of the integration of co-ethnic migrants from North Korea into the South. In order to do so, the authors undertook a survey to "measure the substantive political, economic and social integration of North Korean defector-migrants by looking at South Koreans’ preferences at the ballot box, places of employment and in neighborhoods."
