Abstract

In this study we suggest new approaches to conceptualizing South Korean aid to North Korea as equivalent to official development assistance (ODA) by looking at its historical background and present situation, as well as related laws. We review the characteristics and development of South Korean aid to North Korea, compare it to ODA, and suggest an innovative way of conceptualizing it as ODA. In particular, we assert that if South Korean aid to North Korea were considered ODA, South Korea would be able to effectively assist North Korea and become a more influential and responsible donor in international society.
