"Health Politics in Korea" analyzes the political dynamics of South Korea’s healthcare reform, through the case study on the debate to inaugurate the single payer system of health insurance, which had been practiced for two decades since the early 1980s. During this period, South Korea had undergone unprecedented political and economic turmoils. Through this book, readers will be able to gain valuable insight into how these turbulences had impacted healthcare reform in a politically and economically transitional country. This book also grants opportunities for readers to compare the different paths taken by South Korea’s healthcare reform which reflects the changing dynamics of its political regimes.
The book’s key theoretical perspectives are underpinned by the policy network perspective and new institutionalism. This combination allows the book to establish more integrative and stereoscopic analytical framework linking environmental context, institutional constraints, policy network, and policy outputs.
Through this book, readers may acquire valuable information and knowledge about:
• South Korea’s dynamic politics and its impact on health policy-making
• The enhanced power of civil society groups in Korean health politics
• The emergence of conflicting trade unions and its impact on health politics
• Ideological confrontations surrounding economic efficiency and social solidarity
• The role of political opportunity structure as a catalyst of policy change
• Conflict and resistance in the process of institutional change
• Factors leading to policy success or policy failure.
