South Korean research team of ISCWeB held an Asian symposium on subjective child well-being indicators on May 21 2015 in Seoul.
The symposium aimed to present Korean results of 2013 ISCWeB in comparison with 15 countries and to share main findings of four Asian participants – Israel, Turkey, Nepal, and South Korea– to draw implications on child well-being in Asian contexts.
After the presentations, child researchers from Japan and Hong Kong also participated in the panel discussion. There were more than 200 people in the audience, and the ISCWeB findings received a lot of media attention in South Korea.
This symposium was hosted by Save the Children Korea and the Social Welfare Research Center of Seoul National University.
