Domestic violence against migrant women entering South Korea through marriage is an emerging social problem. This article identifies the unique challenges of the migrant victims of domestic violence in the socio-cultural context of Korea. It then examines the Korean domestic violence policy response to this problem, focusing on the extent to which the government has acknowledged the challenges of migrant women, how the government attempts to remedy these challenges, and the adequacy of the government’s efforts to protect them.
