Demands for 'economic democratization' and a fairer redistribution of wealth occupy center-stage of political campaigns, debates and discourse. The contributions offer perspectives on this wide-ranging socio-political change by examining the transformation of organized labor, civil society, the emergence of new cleavages in society and the growing ethnic diversity of Korea's population.
