Word of Invitation
I am pleased to invite you to the 2nd Colloquium of the Health and Social Welfare Review in this season of looking back on the past year and forward to the new one.
The Health and Social Welfare Review has thrived over the past 36 years since its first publication as the Journal of Population and Health Studies in 1981. It has published valuable papers on the theory and policy of population, health, and social welfare in Korea and introduced numerous policy proposals.
Last year we hosted the first colloquium to find ways to make improvements in the Review. At the colloquium, we selected 4 excellent papers and awarded the authors for their creative thinking and pioneering work. Plenty of comments were made on the theories and methodologies presented by these researches, and suggestions made for future research directions.
This year's colloquium will be focused on the policy aspect of public responsibility for older persons with dementia. Already, there are lively discussions going on about this issue and initiatives are being taken to find specific solutions. Thus it is high time academia made a concrete contribution. Also, we chose the theme partly because it is a theme that requires diverse perspectives from health, welfare, and economics, which reflects the interdisciplinary approach to social issues adopted by the Review.
While the colloquium in 2016 was aimed at an academic progress, the one in the next month will serve as a venue for a creative and challenging policy debate. The synergy between academic and policy debates is one of the aims of the Review.
My hope is that this colloquium will become a gathering for a vibrant discussion that will contribute to the theory and policy of health and social affairs.
Lastly, I would like to thank all the contributors and reviewers of the Review, and those who have shared genuine interest and encouragement. Please join the colloquium and share your invaluable opinion.
