Abstract

Against the backdrop of South Koreas economic growth, the collapse ofsocialist blocs, and the rise of globalization, foreign workers and over-seas Koreans are migrating to South Korea in large numbers, creatinglarge settlements of diverse ethnic and cultural groups. As internationalmarriages account for 12 percent of all marriages in South Korea, themyth of South Koreans ethnic and cultural homogeneity is crumbling.In addition, the possible huge influx of North Koreans to the Southcould send shockwaves of unprecedented magnitude through SouthKorean society in the future.In recognition of the increasing ethnic and cultural diversity inSouth Korean society, this paper aims to address how South Koreansociety should prepare itself in terms of ideology, institutions, and civilconsciousness in order to utilize its growing plurality as a driving forcefor social development. Toward this end, this paper reviews the discus-sions over multicultural citizenship and assesses its applicability toSouth Korean society. A review of the ideology, principles, institution,civil consciousness, and virtues of multicultural citizenship developedin other countries such as the United States, Canada, and Francereveals huge implications for dealing with the potential problems aris-ing from the increase of cultural and ethnic diversity in South Korea.
