A Study on the Cultural Policy for the Korean-Chinese workers
Issue Date
A large number of foreign workers have been coming to Korea since Seoul Olympic Game in 1988. Korea has been experiencing a relatively new phenomenon of influx of foreigners entering the country for employment (Seol, 1996). Ministry of Public Administration and Security (2008) compiled the statistics of foreign workers, and found that the Korean- Chinese workers accounted for more than half. After having come to Korea, the Korean- Chinese workers face many problems like illegal status, poor work conditions, cultural conflict and misunderstanding when they attempt to adjust to a new life and achieve some degree of harmonious engagement. In spite of the growing concerns of the issues of the Korean- Chinese workers, researches on the Korean- Chinese workers are limited especially in cultural policy. Social support are known as factors to enhance acculturation of the Korean- Chinese workers. This paper examined relationships between acculturation and social support for suggesting cultural policy.

All of them were adults of age 18 and over. All respondents resided in Korea peninsula during the year the study was conducted. The respondents participated voluntarily in this study. To measure acculturation strategies, here was a 18-item scale developed, based on the model of Berry(1980)'s The East Asian Acculturation Measure (EAAM) and To measure social support Park's Social Support Scale(1985) was used.
