Theme The Future of Innovative Inclusive States
The Moon Jae-in administration is actively promoting a new vision, “Inclusive Korea for the Commonwealth”, after declaring the year 2019 as the first year to initiate the vision of “Inclusive Korea” and announcing the “Inclusive nation social policy promotion plan”. The “Innovative, Inclusive Korea” would pursue qualitative growth rather than a quantitative growth, while aiming to create a society of coexistence, instead of allowing exclusion and monopoly. In order to achieve an “Innovative, Inclusive Korea”, the Government advocates welfare, a fair economy, and inclusive growth in which the resulting gains are distributed equally to everyone and income increases among mid- to low-income earners. Furthermore, it is essential to pursue values beyond our society and internal affairs such as engagement policy toward North Korea, peace and prosperity in the Korean peninsula, and embracing globalization. The objective of the KIPA session, “the Future of Innovative, Inclusive States” is to introduce cases and core values ​​of “government inclusiveness” in Switzerland, the United States, and South Korea, and discuss a wide range of challenges and strategies to achieve an “Innovative and Inclusive nation”.
