First, it is an attempt to shed light on the advocacy coalition for the inclusive welfare state which has been not been as well examined as it should have been, partly because the coalition has often failed to produce the policy programmes that they wanted. In previous studies on the politics of social policy in Korea, the analytical focus was placed on the top decision makers who made effective policy decisions. These studies showed that social policy was used as a justification for authoritarian politics and an instrument of economic policy (Kwon 1998; Gough 2001).

Policies for social justice and social welfare were seen as incompatible with stabilization policy. Of course, the government did not publicly admit their U-turn. Partly because of misreading the policy agenda of the government, and partly from the administrative necessity to integrate the fragmented health funds within the NHI, the minister and bureaucrats of the MoHS and the CSS went ahead with the plan for integration of health funds and then asked the approval of the President. The plan was reviewed by the policy staffs at the Presidential Office and they recommended that it should be returned to the Ministry for further research - effectively, a rejection of the proposal.
