Abstract

Koreans in New Zealand:

- Recent migrant group

- 930 Koreans in 1991 to 30,171 Koreans in 2013

- Concentrated in Auckland (72.8%)

- 11.0% born in NZ

- 93.2% aged 15 years and over have a form qualification

- Least likely to be able to hold every day conversations in English

- Considered "model minority", Koreans not been considered problematic at a population level and thus research needs for them have not been emphasised

- Some research done with Korean adults (e.g. transnationalism, healthcare access, identity)

- Little research on Korean children
