This policy analysis examines the key issues involved in the Korean Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program. As an important trade policy platform, this research details how the TAA provision targets impacted businesses and employees and documents the program’s eligibility criteria and its evolution over time. The US TAA and EU EGAF programs are also reviewed by detailing their respective strengths and their differences from their Korean counterpart. Finally, we document a range of areas where the Korean TAA initiative needs to be improved in order to best assist the firms and employees that have been negatively impacted by trade liberalization policy.
