- In search of greater economic and social opportunities, people emigrate, choosing to leave their countries of birth. Currently, many married migrant women are building new lives in Korea. They are no longer foreigners or part of the social minority but neighbors raising children and engaging in economic activity in Korea. The purposes of this study are to clarify the importance of studying, in the field of policy studies, the quality of life of marriage migrant women who left their homelands to live in Korea, and to analyze various factors that affect quality of life. Specifically, family factors, relational factors, social factors, and cultural and policy factors are examined. Based on the results of the empirical analysis, this study suggests various policy implications for enhancing the quality of life of marriage migrant women.
