Abstract: This book is divided into two parts. In Part 1, from Chapters 1 through 3, the book introduces emigration trends and policies of Vietnam, Philippines, and Indonesia, which are the largest sending countries of Southeast Asia to Korea. It also discusses policy implications for each of these three countries and Korea as the number of migrants from these countries to Korea has kept on rising. Part 2 includes cases in which major wave of migration to Korea occur on the basis of an individual’s choices and not oriented by government policies encouraging emigration of their nationals. Such countries include the US, Japan, and China where majority of nationals entering Korea are ethnically Korean. This phenomenon is different from the emigration patterns of Southeast Asian countries to Korea since overseas Koreans tend to migrate to Korea for temporary sojourn or return. Meanwhile, this book also attempts to look at the issue of North Korean defectors from an international perspective. North Koreans defection is not an issue to be addressed at a national level, it should be looked at from the viewpoint of international migration as North Korean defectors move to various countries, and Korea is only one of them.
