Spring Conference 2017 on "Welfare Policy Suggestions for the New Government"

Friday, May 19 - 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Soongsil University
Organized by the Korean Association of Social Welfare Policy
Sponsored by the National Pension Research Institute, the Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs, and the Hallym University Happiness Research Team



The Spring Conference this year will evaluate the conservative government's welfare policy over the last decade and adress policy challenges that lie ahead for the new government.

In the wake of a presidential impeachment and the snap election of the new president, welfare issues could easily be buried under seemingly more urgent political issues. It gives us all the more reason to push ourselves and work harder at advancing the welfare state of this country.

The leadership at the Association has arranged a special session on child benefit, believing that ushering child benefit into this country should be a policy priority for the new government. In addition, there will be a Hallym University's Happiness Research Team session, a KIHASA's social integration session, and many other presentations.

Join us for a fruitful discussion that could help steer the new government's welfare policy.
